Opp: ‘Shared Vision – Your Decision’? Funding Opportunity

‘Shared Vision – Your Decision’? Funding Opportunity Over the past few months Police in Edinburgh and the City of Edinburgh Council have been working in partnership with representatives from the City's Muslim, Sikh and Hindu communities to deliver this funding opportunity. We are inviting you to apply for funding to deliver projects which will help create a city free from Islamophobia. Individuals and groups, supported by a charity or organisation, as well as charities and organisations themselves, can submit an application to receive up to £5,000 worth of funding per project.
