Government announces additional £1.5million funding for Near Neighbours Programme 15/04/2016

The DCLG has announced an additional £1.5 million of funding for the Near Neighbours Programme.


Using the infrastructure of the Church of England, the Near Neighbours Programme provides small grants and support to grassroots groups to help them run projects which bring about lasting benefits to neighbourhoods with significant religious diversity.


The programme was set up in 2011 in partnership between the Church Urban Fund and the Archbishop's Council and is funded by the DCLG.


Near Neighbours works out of 'hubs' in Bradford, Birmingham, the Black Country, Leicester, Luton and across most of London. Since its launch, in 2011, over 1,100 projects have been established benefiting one million people in some of England's most diverse communities, including over 50% of projects offering new skills to the unemployed.


This announcement of an additional £1.5 million funding brings the total funding to £9.5 million.
