Scottish Government - Tackling Sectarianism Fund 2017-18
The Scottish Government Community Safety Unit is now inviting applications to the Tackling Sectarianism Fund for period 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018.
Applicants should explain how they believe that their initiative will add to this knowledge base which can include providing information on:
The nature and extent of sectarianism in Scotland and specifically how it is understood in, and impacts on, individual communities across Scotland.
The extent to which tackling sectarianism is a priority for individual communities and the level to which communities are prepared to engage in open and frank dialogue with one another on this issue.
The effectiveness of different interventions, and what can be learned from interventions which fail to have the intended impact and how interventions can be mainstreamed successfully.
The fund is an open competitive fund and applications will be assessed by the Scottish Government and the Voluntary Action Fund (VAF) with the final decision to be made by Scottish Ministers. There is an upper limit of £82,000 and a lower limit of £20,000.
