This fund will support civil society organisations in London who are standing up against hate, intolerance and extremism. The Mayor of London has joined forces with Google.org to invest £800,000 to fight intolerance and extremism in the capital. Grants of up to £50,000 are available for projects which identify opportunities to counter violent extremism in London.
The Shared Endeavour fund welcomes applications from groups who can show that their projects will satisfy one or more of the following outcomes:
- Directly counters and / or offers positive alternatives to the promotion of hateful, intolerant and extremist messages and content (both online and offline).
- Raises awareness of and increases resilience to the dangers of hate, intolerance, extremism and radicalisation (particularly in relation to vulnerable people).
- Encourages and empowers others to stand up to hate, intolerance and extremism (both online and offline).
