Manchester's RADEQUAL Campaign and grant programme was launched in September 2016 to build community resilience and empower and enable voluntary and community sector organisations and communities to come together to challenge hate, prejudice and extremism.
All Crime and Disorder
A community fund has been created to support local communities affected by the attack at the Manchester Arena on 22nd May 2017. The fund will assist local groups and organisations to host events and manage initiatives to counter hate and emerging unrest, and should look to promote cohesion within communities.
Hate crime has no place in Manchester. Everyone has the right to feel safe and we all have a responsibility to stand against hatred and discrimination. This has always been important and even more so following the Manchester attack. Manchester Community Safety Partnership has funding available to tackle hate crime. This funding has been running for several years and paid for some fantastic events and projects. This is the first year that Macc will be involved in the administration of the programme.
We have pulled together a range of information collected so far about the additional support local charities & community organisations are offering in the aftermath of the events.
