Places of Worship Security Funding Scheme
The Home Office's £2.4 million Places of Worship Security Funding Scheme was set up in 2016 to help secure places of worship in England and Wales. The scheme is one of the main commitments contained within the Government's Hate Crime Action Plan. It will provide protective security measures to places of worship that have been subject to, or are vulnerable to a hate crime attack. £1m has been made available for the third round, taking place in 2018.
In a bid to tackle the increasing number of hate crimes directed at religious buildings, the Government is making the funding available to places of worship so that they can purchase extra security equipment.
