PLACES OF WORSHIP SECURITY FUNDING SCHEME – APPLICATION WINDOW NOW OPEN
The Home Office is pleased to announce that the fifth round of the Places of Worship (POW) Protective Security Funding Scheme is now open for applications until 23:59 on the 9 August 2020.
The Places of Worship Protective Security Funding Scheme is a key commitment of our 2016-2020 Hate Crime Action Plan and more than 180 places of worship have been awarded grants to install measures such as protective alarms, security lighting and access controls.
The scheme is open to places of worship and associated faith community centres (we define this as a community centre run by a place of worship or near a place of worship that is faith based, and where regular worship takes place) across England and Wales.
Further details of the funding scheme and how to apply are provided via the link below.
