Apply for funding if your place of worship needs extra security to protect it from attacks on racial, religious or ideological grounds.

About the Scheme:

The scheme will provide funding for security measures to places of worship and associated community centres that are vulnerable to attack on racial, religious or ideological grounds.

You can bid for funding from 30 June 2017.


We will consider bids from places of worship in England and Wales. Below are some examples of places of worship eligible to apply for the funding (please note this is not an exhaustive list):

  • Mosques
  • Gurdwaras
  • Temples
  • Churches
  • associated faith community centres (for example a community centre run by a place of worship or near a place of worship that is faith based)

Faith schools, educational institutions, general community centres, NHS establishments (including chapels and prayer rooms) are not eligible to apply.

The Jewish community will be exempt from this scheme as a similar commitment was made to fund Jewish community sites through a grant administered by the Community Security Trust.
