The Inter Faith Youth Trust is launching a new grant programme for young people’s organisations to hold inter faith events or activities in the Greater Manchester area. May 2019 will mark two years since the bombing at the Manchester Arena. The focus of the project is to highlight the good that can come from different communities working together in friendship. Grants are for between £200 to £1,000.
Grants will be awarded for:
• Projects or activities held in the Greater Manchester Area from April to June 2019
• Projects must include learning by children and young people (11-25 years old) from different faiths about different faiths, through social action. So you must include more than one faith and show how your project of social action will promote learning about faiths
• Co-operation and understanding between faiths which preferably involve young people in planning, running, and evaluating; and which promote equal opportunities
• Increasing understanding between people of faith and of no faith
Grants are given to organisations / groups not individuals in the UK.
Priority will be given to projects which:
• Actively involve young people in planning, running, and evaluation
• Promote positive action i.e. young people from different backgrounds coming together to address shared problems like improving green spaces
• Are run by non-statutory organisations, such as youth clubs, scout/guide groups, local voluntary and community organisations. Schools can apply provided that more than one school or organisation is involved in a joint project
