The funding will support projects run by charities, voluntary and community organisations, CICs, CIOs and statutory bodies that build stronger connections across communities, and improve the infrastructure and conditions that are needed to strengthen these connections.
The funding, which is made available through the National Lottery Community Fund’s Bringing People Together programme, will enable organisations to deliver collaborative projects across at least two countries in the UK that focus on equality, diversity and inclusion, particularly amongst people of colour, disabled people, LGBTQ+ people, and asylum or refugee seekers.
