  • Health
  • Businesses, including small and medium-sized enterprises
  • Registered charities.

Projects must focus on one or more of the following objectives:

  • Increase the understanding of and reduce the risk of radicalisation within a particular sector (i.e. health sector)
  • Increase the understanding of and reduce the risk of radicalisation within a particular demographic (i.e. young people)
  • Work with vulnerable individuals or groups through outreach projects
  • Helping project participants to develop the judgement skills to challenge others’ views confidently

Projects are expected to have total costs ranging from £10,000 to £100,000 and must involve an organisation that leads the project. The Home Office will provide funding for evaluation separate to this.
