We would like to inform you about the Places of Worship Security Funding Scheme.

The funding is available for places of worship including mosques that have been subject to, or are vulnerable to hate crime attacks, to provide protective security measures such as CCTV, fencing and lighting.

Given that Islamophobic attacks are on the rise and many mosques have been attacked in recent years, it is important that our mosques are protected. This funding scheme can help some of the mosques and their communities feel safe and secure. The applications will close at 23:59 on 10 August 2018.

Please note that this scheme is funded by the Home Office and MINAB is in no way affiliated with the Home Office or the scheme.

MINAB will be organising workshops across the country to help mosques with the application process. The details of the workshops will follow soon. We can also support your mosque individually with filling in the application and streamline the process. Please do get in touch with us if you require assistance.
