New funding aims to build cohesive communities

Community groups and third sector organisations are being invited to apply for funding up to £2,000 to support initiatives that highlight and celebrate the diversity of communities across Cardiff.

Funding can be used for various purposes, like events and activities, producing supportive literature or building capacity in a community.

Cardiff Council cabinet member (and councillor for Heath/ Birchgrove) Councillor Julie Sangani, said: "The aim is to ensure people from different backgrounds in our communities have positive relationships, have a sense of mutual respect and feel safe in their neighbourhoods.

"We're keen to hear from groups and organisations about the creative ways they want to do this in their communities. It could be about promoting cultural diversity, bringing people together in cooking sessions, making community music, arts-based projects, sports, dance and more."

Applications must meet at least one of the following objectives:

  1. Celebrating diversity

  2. Hate crime awareness

  3. Countering harmful narratives

  4. Reducing community tensions

  5. Community capacity building

  6. Communities working together to support community cohesion

  7. Promoting equality across all protected characteristics within the Equality Act 2010

  8. Promoting community cohesion as outlined in the Future Generations Act (A Wales of cohesive communities - Attractive, viable, safe and well-connected communities)

  9. Celebrating a significant equality event

In exceptional circumstances, the panel will consider funding up to £5,000.
