Near Neighbours programme
The Near Neighbours programme brings people together in religiously and ethnically diverse communities, creating friendships, building relationships of trust and helping people to transform their neighbourhoods together
Near Neighbours works in four main locations in England: parts of Birmingham; Bradford; areas of East London, and in Leicester. In addition to supporting key partner organisations working in these areas, the programme includes a small grants fund (£250-£5,000) to help community groups of different faiths, or none, to create events or projects that foster social interaction and social action.

Please be aware that the Near Neighbours small grants fund has allocated all funds and has now closed. Please do not send any new applications to the fund as they will be automatically declined.
