Funding opportunity – Hong Kong Empowerment Fund

Feb 28, 2024 | Uncategorized

Hong Kong Voluntary, Community, and Social Enterprise (VCSE) are very pleased to inform you that we have launched the Hong Kong Empowerment Fund

This Fund targets equity-led non-established or newly established groups and organisations run by and/or for Hong-Kongers to deliver integration projects to Hong Kong British National (Overseas) visa holders (BN(O)s) in London. We encourage applications that deliver integration support and activities for BN(O)s, with a focus on embedding BN(O)s into the local community and building sustainable support networks. This Fund also aims to empower Hong Kong Civil Society by encouraging newly established and/or smaller grassroots groups and organisations to work in collaboration, either with each other or with more established organisations, to provide support to BN(O)s in London and create a legacy for their work

Two types of grants are available:

– Growth grants: up to £15,000 – open to non-established and newly established groups or organisations run by and/or for Hongkongers and their partners.

– Collaboration grants: up to £50,000 – open to two or more non-established, newly established and/or smaller grassroot groups and organisations working in collaboration and partnership. A lead partner must be identified in the application, and this must be a legally constituted group

Key dates to look out for:

– Information session:  Wednesday 6th March 2024 at 12noon

– Application closes: Wednesday 27th March 2024 at 9am

– Interviews for shortlisted applicants: Wednesday 10th April 2024 – Friday 19th April 2024
