Kick It Out, the national campaign against racism in football, is offering grants for community organisations which want to participate in October’s Anti-Racism Week of Action.
The week of action is held every year during Black History Month to use the medium of football as a tool for education, anti-racism and encouraging inclusion. This year, Kick It Out hopes to explore the links between football and Muslim communities, as the week of action coincides with the start of Ramadan.
Thirty grants, of up to £1,000 each, are available to community groups, schools, youth clubs, tenants’ associations and other grassroots organisations. For those who wish to put on smaller-scale activities, support in kind is available in the form of T-shirts, banners, exhibits and publications.
More information is available from Kick It Out on 020 7684 4884.
