The Building a Stronger Britain Together (BSBT) 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 programme offered 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
The call for grant funding closed on 16 February 2018, however the call for in-kind communications support is open. Please visit https://www.gov.uk/guidance/building-a-stronger-britain-together for further guidance and application details.
