Detailed guide: Building a Stronger Britain Together

 

 

About the programme

The counter-extremism strategy encourages partnership between the government and people involved in projects that counter extremism and build stronger communities.

The Building a Stronger Britain Together (BSBT) programme supports civil society and community organisations who work to create more resilient communities, stand up to extremism in all its forms and offer vulnerable individuals a positive alternative, regardless of race, faith, sexuality, age and gender. The programme allows organisations that share these aims to bid for in-kind support and grant funding for specific programmes that deliver goals set out in the Counter Extremism Strategy.

More information about the groups we support and the work they are delivering can be found in the partnership support programme summer update (PDF, 1.12MB, 5 pages) .

If you wish to join the BSBT Newsletter mailing list, please contact us at bsbt@homeoffice.gov.uk.

To help groups expand their reach and influence, the Building a Stronger Britain Together programme offers 2 forms of support through a competitive bidding process:

  • in-kind support: such as social media training, technical assistance to help a group improve their website, or capacity building work to help a group protect more vulnerable individuals
  • grants: targeted funding for specific projects with demonstrable outcomes which provide a positive alternative to extremist voices
