Places of Worship Protective Security Funding Scheme Opens for Bids

| Return|

The Home Office is providing a total of £3.2 million in grant funding this year to help places of worship who feel they are vulnerable to hate crime to install more secure gates, locks, alarms and CCTV in order to deter and prevent hate crime attacks.

Places of worship in England and Wales, including churches, gurdwaras, mosques, temples and associated faith community centres, can apply for grants of up to £56,000 per place of worship.

The funding can cover the costs of up to three security measures from the following list:

  • CCTV (fixed cameras, not pan-tilt cameras)

  • Fencing and/or railings (no more than 2.1m high)

  • Manually operated pedestrian and vehicle gates

  • Automated vehicle gates

  • Security doors and locks

  • Reinforcing single glazed windows (with anti-shatter film or bars/grilles)

  • Intruder alarms

  • Access control (fob or keypad)

  • Video intercom systems

  • Lighting (building mounted)

The funding only covers the provision and installation of these security measures. It does not cover other associated costs such as licensing and planning permission, or ongoing costs such as charges for annual service, maintenance and monitoring.

The deadline for applications is 23:59 on 9 August 2020.
