Government Funding for security at Places of Worship

Churches, mosques and temples have been invited to bid for funds (synagogues are excluded from the scheme as the Government has provided a separate grant to the Community Security Trust, a charity that provides protection services to Britain’s Jewish communities).

The scheme has been launched by the Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, when she recently outlined a Hate Crime Action Plan last month.  The Action Plan was launched following a rise in racist incidents since the UK voted to withdraw from the European Union.

The Government will accept bids for its security funding scheme for places of worship until 5pm on 20 September.  A second round of bids will open in the spring of next year.
