kid with bookThe grant programme for Inter Faith Week 2016 is back for another year.

What is available?

Organisations can apply for a small grant of up to £500 to help them run an event or activity connected with Inter Faith Week 2016. Inter Faith Week takes place between 13th and 20th November 2016 and seeks to increase understanding and cooperation between people from different faiths, including those with no formal faith, through social action.

Grants must be used to help young people from different faiths learn about different faiths. Activities must involve young people aged between 11 and 25 years.


Priority will be given to projects which:

  • Actively involve young people in planning, running, and evaluation of the project.
  • Promote positive action i.e. young people from different backgrounds coming together to address shared problems like improving green spaces.
  • Are run by non-statutory organisations, such as youth clubs, scout/guide groups, local voluntary and community organisations.
Which organisations are eligible to apply?

It says that UK based organisations can apply, although priority will be given to projects that are run by non-statutory organisations, including youth clubs, scout and guide groups, and local voluntary and community organisations.

How do I apply?

There is an application available to download from the Inter Faith Youth Trust website.

The deadline for applications is 9th September 2016.

You will hear if your application has been successful by the middle of October 2016.

Further information is available from the Inter Faith Youth Trust’s website.
