Grants between £250 & £5,000 available for local groups & organisations working to develop relationships across diverse faiths and ethnicities.
Near Neighbours is an exciting initiative from the Church Urban Fund which provides easy-to-access funding for grassroots community organisations in diverse areas of the UK.
Near Neighbours has two key objectives:
- Social interaction – to develop positive relationships in multi-faith areas i.e. to help people from different faiths get to know and understand each other better.
- Social action – to encourage people of different faiths and of no faith to come together for initiatives that improve their local neighbourhood.
We are wanting to get the word out to faith/community groups or charities all over 11 different boroughs in West London to help them access small grants of up to £5000 for projects which bring together religiously and culturally diverse communities.
