Funding support for the third sector

Building a Stronger Britain Together

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

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

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 allows organisations that share these aims to bid for in-kind support and grant funding for specific programmes that deliver goals set out in the Counter Extremism Strategy.

 

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.
