FARE network launches small grants to drive inclusion
The FARE #FootballPeople small grants are back to support hundreds of projects across Europe in and around Europe’s largest series of social interventions in sport.
Grants of up to €500 are now available for organisations to apply and organise activities during the period at local or regional level that promote diversity and social inclusion.
In 2017, 2,300 activities were organised during the #FootballPeople weeks in 62 countries. A total of 114,000 people took part in the campaign and this year you can be one of them. Planning around the #FootballPeople weeks came earlier this year. In April, Fare announced the first four beneficiaries of the #FootballPeople Development Grants, a new grant scheme that promotes regular football activities around the campaign.
Also in April, Fare launched the Event Grants scheme to give grant recipients more time to prepare and organise their interventions. These will be announced on farenet.org in the upcoming weeks. The 2018 #FootballPeople action weeks will take place between 11-25 October. To apply, please visit the FARE network website.
