The Inter Faith Youth Trust is offering grants of £200 – £500 for organisations running events or projects connected with Inter Faith Week 2014, 16-22 November.

Grants are awarded for proposals for inter-faith activities by children and young people from Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh and other faiths and those of no formal faith, in understanding and co-operation. The age range for young people is 11-25 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.

Grants can provide part-funding. The closing date is 31 August.
