RadequalRADEQUAL is Manchester's campaign co designed with communities to build community resilience. The focus of this round of Grant funding (2020-21) is 'Building Community Resilience to Hateful Extremism'.

RADEQUAL define hateful extremism as ideas, attitudes and behaviours that are hateful towards specific ‘others’ and designed to undermine social cohesion.

Voluntary and community sector and not for profit organisations and groups across the city of Manchester can apply. RADEQUAL welcome expressions of interest from community organisations, registered social landlords, charities, groups working with young people, media and creative arts groups etc. RADEQUAL also encourage joint bids which demonstrate collaborative working.

RADEQUAL is looking for activities that:
1. Build awareness of all forms of hateful extremism (in line with the definition provided)
2. Facilitate conversations about hateful extremism, what it looks like and the harms that it can cause at a community level
3. Promote critical thinking to help communities (women, asylum seekers / refugees, parents and families, faith organisations, young people, new communities and schools and colleges) to identify and challenge extremist propaganda (online and face to face between communities)
4. Build community resilience to hateful extremism
5. Establish resources that can be accessed by the RADEQUAL Network

Grants of £1,000 and £10,000 are available.
