FORTNIGHT OF ACTION GRANTS 2014 - Wales
“Working together to tackle Racism”
Show Racism the Red Card encourages innovative grassroots projects around the country to raise awareness of the Fortnight of Action and to highlight issues of racism, diversity and inclusion by running their own initiatives through our Fortnight of Action Community Grant Initiative:
This year, Show Racism the Red Card is awarding small grants of up to £300 for the development of community-based projects in Wales.
Grants are available to non-statutory organisations including community groups, schools, youth clubs, sport clubs, charities and other grassroots bodies that are working to engage with young people, ethnic minorities, excluded groups, football fans, and refugees and asylum seekers along with highlighting anti racism.
Applications should demonstrate the below criteria.
1) Anti-racism message & an educational value.
2) Sport orientated.
3) Partnership work with other local agencies.
4) Projects must take place within the Fortnight of Action (17-31st October 2014).
5) Act as a catalyst for further anti-racist activity throughout the year.
6) Encourage community participation.
What type of project is likely to receive funding?
The aim of the Fortnight of Action is to encourage innovative grassroots projects around the country that will raise awareness of the Fortnight of Action and to highlight issues of racism, diversity and inclusion.
Be creative in your application. We welcome applications that use the medium of sport as a tool for anti-racist education including those that encourage inclusion of groups under-represented in football and those that challenge discrimination in society.
Grassroots education remains the key to tackling racism in the long term. Show Racism the Red Card can provide schools / educationalists / community workers / anti-racist activist groups with a wide range of resources to assist facilitating anti-racism projects this October.
Applicants will need to demonstrate the aims of their project, how the project will benefit the local community and how it can be sustained in the future. Partnerships can be formed to deliver projects, especially those that might bring in additional funding.
