The Allen Lane Foundation has announced a new Social Cohesion Programme, aimed at supporting local communities. The objectives of the fund are:
- to work towards building community cohesion and trust, encouraging respect and understanding in the area
- to promote the inclusion of marginalised groups and individuals in the local community
- to fund work which breaks down barriers in the local community, thereby reducing feelings of division and “them and us”
The Foundation is seeking applications from community-led grassroots groups and organisations which have a focus on work done at a community level. Applications may be submitted at any time.
For further information, including eligibility criteria, please visit the Allen Lane Foundation website.
