“Over the past few months Police in Edinburgh and the City of Edinburgh Council have been working in partnership with representatives from the City’s Muslim, Sikh and Hindu communities to deliver this funding opportunity.
We are inviting you to apply for funding to deliver projects which will help create a city free from Islamophobia.
Individuals and groups, supported by a charity or organisation, as well as charities and organisations themselves, can submit an application to receive up to £5,000 worth of funding per project.
The total fund available is £40,000 and has been contributed to by Police Scotland, City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish Government and will help deliver an innovative project, which reduces prejudice and fosters positive relationships between the Capital’s diverse communities.
This could be through a series of events designed to bring communities together, working with perpetrators of hate crime to change attitudes, producing and delivering educational inputs, or an idea of your own.
The Edinburgh public will decide which applications are successful.
You will find the information you need to apply attached to this e-mail along with the actual application form and further information can be found at
We look forward to receiving your application prior to the closing date of 12th December.”
