*The Home Office is inviting charities and other not-for-profit
organisations in England and Wales that are working to challenge extremism
in their communities to apply to round three of its four-year programme of
grants and in-kind communications support.*

The Home Office established the four-year Building a Stronger Britain
Together (BSBT) programme in September 2016 to help deliver a key strand of
the Government’s Counter-Extremism Strategy published in 2015. The
programme aims to promote and strengthen positive mainstream voices across

The Building a Stronger Britain Together Programme is available in England
and Wales only. It offers both grant funding and in-kind support to civil
society and community organisations that are working to create more
resilient communities, to stand up to extremism in all its forms and to
offer vulnerable individuals a positive alternative, regardless of race,
faith, sexuality, age, and gender.

The Fund offers the following:

   - Grants of between either £1,000 and £14,999 or £15,000 and £50,000.
   - In-kind support up to a value of £75,000. This might include social
   media training, help setting up a website or advice on media activity.

Any registered UK charity, charitable incorporated organisation, company
limited by guarantee, not for profit registered community interest company,
or constituted community and voluntary sector organisation can apply as
long as they have been in existence for at least 12 months.

Groups applying for grants of up to £14,999 must have an income of less
than £200,000. For applications for grants between £15,000 and £50,000,
priority will be given to groups with an income of less than £250,000.
However, groups with a larger income will not be excluded from applying.

Proposals must be aligned with one or more of the BSBT programme outcomes
which are:

   - Fewer people holding attitudes, beliefs and feelings that oppose
   shared values.
   - An increased sense of belonging and civic participation at the local
   - More resilient communities.

There will be a new call for bids for each new financial year to make sure
the funding has impact across all four years, and to make sure

The call for in-kind support is expected to open within the next couple of
weeks and will remain open all year with a regular draw down of
applications for assessment and award.

The deadline for applications for grant funding is *16 February 2018 (5pm).*

 Full details, including guidance notes and online application forms, can
be found on the GOV.UK website
