The Community Cohesion Grants Scheme has been running for over two years. To date, more than £30,000 has been awarded to local groups . This grant funding of £50,000 over three years supports activities that help improve relationships between people from different backgrounds.
Community cohesion is one of eight themes in Crawley’s Sustainable Community Strategy. It includes the vision: “A town where people from different communities interact across a range of cultural, leisure and social activities, are mutually supportive of each other, and feel part of a wider community.”
