About the Shared Endeavour Fund

Groundwork London is delighted to continue to administer the Mayor of London’s Shared Endeavour Fund (SEF) on behalf of The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC). For Call Five, grants of up to £100,000 will be available to support initiatives that challenge racism, intolerance, hate, extremism and terrorism, offline and online, in London.

In January 2020, the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, launched the Shared Endeavour Fund, a grants programme to support civil society projects that:

  • Strengthen communities against extremism
  • Encourage Londoners to stand up to hate and intolerance
  • Safeguard Londoners vulnerable to radicalisation
  • Stop the spread of extremist ideologies
Who can apply?

The Shared Endeavour Fund welcomes applications from groups who can demonstrate that the proposed project addresses at least one of the four priority themes for Call Five:

  1. Awareness raising: Increase Londoners’ awareness of the existence and impact of, as well as counter-narratives to, intolerance, hate, extremism and/or terrorism.
  2. Building psychosocial resilience: Strengthen psychosocial factors that promote resilience to radicalisation and extremist recruitment among vulnerable individuals and groups.
  3. Promote prosocial behaviours: Empower Londoners to safely and effectively challenge intolerant, hateful and extremist attitudes and behaviours.
  4. Strengthen prevention capability: Support frontline practitioners in education, social services, civil society and communities to prevent and counter intolerance, hate, extremism and radicalisation in local schools and communities.

Applicants will need to evidence that they are one of the below to meet eligibility requirements:

  • Registered UK Charities
  • Charitable Incorporated Organisations
  • Companies Limited by Guarantee
  • Not-for-Profit Registered Community Interest Companies
  • Constituted Community Groups
  • Voluntary Sector Organisations
What funding is available?

We will offer three tiers of grants up to £100,000.

Tier 1 grants

  • Work will take place in at least one or more London boroughs

Tier 2 grants

Tier 3 grants

  • Work will take place across London, with work directly taking place in locations in North, East, South and West London boroughs
  • Work should include delivery in at least eight or more London boroughs
  • Organisations will have a proven track record in this field
  • Organisations must bring an additional minimum match funding value of at least 50% of the requested amount. For example, if bidding for £80,000 from the Shared Endeavour Fund then there would need to be match funding of £40,000.
  • Match funding guidelines – match funding must not be from an applicant’s reserves. It also excludes match funding from the Home Office’s Homeland Security Group (HSG) including funding given to local authorities from HSG (e.g. Prevent Strategy funding). This is inclusive of funding given to local authorities from HSG (e.g. Prevent Strategy funding). However, grants from other government departments may be included.

It is the intention of the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime that projects should be completed by the end of March 2025.
