Funding for Security Measures to Protect Places of Worship Against Hate Crime

09 June 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

The Home Office funding aims to reduce the risk and impact of hate crime at places of worship such as churches, gurdwaras, mosques, temples, and associated faith community centres across England and Wales.

Grants of up to £56,000 are available per place of worship to cover the costs of installing 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
  • Door hardening, locks and mail box/mail bag
  • Reinforcing single glazed windows (with anti-shatter film or bars/grilles only)
  • Intruder alarms including integrated smoke/heat detection
  • Door entry 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.

All measures under the scheme must be completed and delivered by 31 March 2022.

The scheme is open to all faiths, except the Jewish community and Synagogues, as a similar commitment was made to fund Jewish community sites through a grant administered by the Community Security Trust.

The deadline for applications is 23:50 on 2 July 2021.

How To Apply

Full details of the scheme and the online application form can be found on the GOV.UK website.

Any queries regarding an application should be directed to the Home Office's nominated contractor Esotec Limited.
