The Building a Stronger Britain programme is now open to applications.

Grants are available for project costs of up to £50,000.

The programme supports civil society and community organisations who work to create more resilient communities, stand up to extremism in all its forms and offer vulnerable individuals a positive alternative, regardless of race, faith, sexuality, age and gender.

The BSBT programme is a strand of the Government's Counter Extremism Strategy (October 2015) and they are looking for local projects that ultimately counter extremism and build stronger communities.
