About the Shared Endeavour Fund

We’re working with the Mayor of London to offer grants of up to £45,000 for projects which identify opportunities to counter violent extremism in London.

In June 2019, the Mayor of London published the final report from his Countering Violent Extremism Programme. The report includes 70 recommendations for initiatives that could help counter extremism in London across the key areas of:

  • Strengthening communities against extremism
  • Encouraging Londoners to stand up to hate and intolerance
  • Safeguarding vulnerable Londoners from radicalisation
  • Stopping the spread of extremist ideologies
Who can apply?

The Shared Endeavour Fund welcomes applications from groups who can show that their projects will satisfy one or more of the following outcomes:

  1. Fewer Londoners developing, embracing or acting upon racist, hateful, intolerant or extremist views.
  2. More Londoners actively, confidently and safely challenging racist, hateful, intolerant or extremist views and content.
  3. Fewer Londoners radicalised into supporting hateful or extremist ideologies or being recruited into extremist groups.
  4. More Londoners resilient to online harms including online disinformation, misinformation and radicalisation.

  • Registered UK Charity
  • Charitable Incorporated Organisation
  • Companies Limited by Guarantee
  • Not for Profit Registered Community Interest Company
  • Constituted Community Groups
  • Voluntary Sector Organisation
