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 demonstrate that the proposed project addresses one or more of the four priority themes for Call III:

  1. Awareness raising: Increase Londoners’ awareness of the existence, impact and counter-arguments to racism, intolerance, hate, extremism and/or terrorism.
  2. Building psychosocial resilience: Strengthen psychosocial factors among Londoners that promote resilience to radicalisation and extremist recruitment.
  3. Encouraging prosocial behaviours: Empower Londoners to actively, confidently and safely challenge intolerant, hateful and extremist attitudes and behaviours.
  4. Stakeholder capacity building: Support key stakeholders such as teachers, practitioners, community leaders and activists to work with communities to prevent and counter intolerance, hate, extremism 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

    Work will take place in at least one or more London boroughs.
  • Tier 2 – Between £25,001 to £45,000
