The Bolton Be Safe Partnership is offering grants to community groups who want to raise awareness of hate crime.
The partnership includes Bolton Council, GMP and other partners from the community and voluntary sector and has a fund of up to £15,000 to support local groups in raising awareness of hate crime and encourage discussion about it.
Community groups can apply for funding to hold an awareness-raising activity or public event during Greater Manchester Hate Crime Awareness Week in February 2018, or to deliver a longer term project which will help people find out more about hate crime.
Groups who are interested in applying for the funding can come along to a showcase of previous hate crime awareness projects at Bolton CVS, Bold St on Friday October 20 at 10.30am.
Alternatively, to find out more about how to apply for this funding they can visit

Councillor Derek Burrows, Cabinet Member for Community Safety said: “Hate crime is completely unacceptable and we are working with our partners to end it completely. We hope that the events and awareness raising activities which Be Safe provides funding for will raise awareness of hate crime and encourage people to take a stand against it.”
