RADEQUAL Small Grants 2022

5 Nov 2021 - 13:48 by michelle.foster

radequalRADEQUAL is Manchester’s campaign to build community resilience.

The RADEQUAL Grant funding theme for 2022 will be ‘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.

For 2022, RADEQUAL are planning to offer groups and organisations in the city a small grant (up to £500) to deliver engagement, events and training which help to build awareness and capacity to tackle hateful extremism.

RADEQUAL is looking for activities that:

  • Build awareness of all forms of hateful extremism (in line with the definition provided)
  • Facilitate conversations about hateful extremism, what it looks like and the harms that it can cause at a community level.
  • 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)
  • Build community resilience to hateful extremism
  • Establish resources that can be accessed by the RADEQUAL Network

Who can apply?
Voluntary and community sector and not for profit organisations and groups across the city of Manchester. We would welcome applications from community organisations, registered social landlords, charities, groups working with young people, media and creative arts groups etc.

Applicants will be expected to:

  • Respond to the 2022 RADEQUAL theme of Building Community Resilience to Hateful Extremism
  • Demonstrate collaborative working across different communities and organisations
  • Utilise community assets and promote positive local role models
  • Demonstrate commitment to equality of opportunity and inclusion
  • Demonstrate value for money
