Fighting extremism must be a joint effort

The Home Office has launched a programme of support for frontline organisations working to challenge extremism in their communities,  They are encouraged to bid for support as part of the first wave of the Building a Stronger Britain Together programme.

This 4-year initiative delivers a key strand of the government’s counter-extremism strategy published last year and aims to promote & strengthen positive mainstream voices across Britain.
