Applications are invited from community and faith groups, charities, schools and voluntary groups.  Thye can apply for grants of up to £400 to hold an event during hate crime awareness week from 5 – 12 February 2018.

In the last twelve months over 70 events have been funded in the city of Manchester to highlight and promote the importance of reporting hate crimes but also to celebrate Manchester’s rich diversity and show how we work together to make our city so great.

Hate Crime as no place in Manchester. Everyone has the right to feel safe and we all have a responsibility to stand against hatred, intolerance and discrimination. This has always been important, but even more so in light of the recent terror attacks in Manchester and London.

The deadline for applications is 4 pm on Friday 24th November 2017.

Full information about the grants and guidance for applications is available here
