Mayor of London Launches New Fund

Civil society groups from across London are invited to the launch of a new fund that supports ‘standing together against hate, intolerance and extremism’ on 14 January at the Google Academy in London.

The Mayor of London’s Shared Endeavour Fund aims to support civil society organisations in London who can deliver projects which:

  • Counter extremist narrative and offer positive alternatives to vile ideologies.
  • Encourage others to stand up to hate, intolerance and extremism.

The amount of funding available has yet to be announced but grants are expected to ‘satisfy suitably for civil society groups and projects of all shapes and sizes’.

The fund was mentioned in the Mayor’s June 2019 report 'A Shared Endeavour: Working in Partnership to Counter Violent Extremism in London’ in which he ‘committed to delivering a small grants programme to civil society groups delivering projects which directly counter extremism, offer positive alternatives to vile ideologies and encourage others to stand up to hate and intolerance’.

Groups who would like to learn more about the fund, meet City Hall officials and benefit from free capacity building mini-sessions designed to enhance their organisation can register now on Eventbrite. Groups should register as soon as possible as spaces are limited.
