Groundwork are working with the Mayor of London to offer grants of up to £50,000 for projects which identify opportunities to counter violent extremism in London.
The Shared Endeavour fund welcomes applications from groups who can show that their projects will satisfy one or more of the following outcomes:
• Directly counters and / or offers positive alternatives to the promotion of hateful, intolerant and extremist messages and content (both online and offline)
• Raises awareness of and increases resilience to the dangers of hate, intolerance, extremism and radicalisation (particularly in relation to vulnerable people)
• Encourages and empowers others to stand up to hate, intolerance and extremism (both online and offline)
There are three tiers of grants, leading to a maximum of £50,000, as follows:
Tier 1- Up to £10,000
Work will take place in at least one London borough within 6 months.
Tier 2 – Between £10,001 to £25,000
Work will take place in two or more London boroughs within 7 months.
Tier 3 – Between £25,001 to £50,000
Work will take place in four or more London boroughs within 8 months.
Project delivery will start on the 1st June 2020.
