Funding and support for groups involved in counter-extremism projects in their communities.

About the programme

The counter-extremism strategy encourages partnership between the government and people involved in projects that counter extremism and build stronger communities.

To help groups expand their reach and influence, the Building a Stronger Britain Together programme offers 2 forms of support through a competitive bidding process:

  • in-kind support (such as social media training, technical assistance to help a group improve their website, or capacity building work to help a group protect more vulnerable individuals)
  • grants: targeted funding for specific projects with demonstrable outcomes which provide a positive alternative to extremist voices

You can apply for both in-kind support and grant funding if they are both needed.
