Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government & Sport England: Integrated Communities Innovation Fund

Health & Social Care Sports Monday August 20th, 2018

The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government in partnership with Sport England are awarding grants (no maximum) to not-for-profit organisations to support fresh approaches which help build integrated communities, including projects that use sport and physical activity to encourage the integration.

Grants will support approaches which address the breadth of factors which can lead to poor integration, including:

  • The level and pace of migration.
  • Labour market disadvantage.
  • Residential segregation and segregation in schools.
  • A lack of meaningful social mixing and certain religious and cultural values and attitudes.

In summary, the Fund wishes to support projects that:

  • Are innovative in how they tackle systemic integration challenges, including experimentation in the design of new approaches.
  • Offer sound reasoning as to why they will be likely to achieve positive integration outcomes and, where available, have a clear evidence base to support this.
  • Have a clear understanding of how outcomes will be measured and how the success of the project can be evaluated.
  • Demonstrate how they have, or will secure, buy-in to the proposal from delivery partners and from the local communities in which they will be tested.
  • Show potential for growth, both in terms of the number of people reached and effectiveness in different local contexts.
  • Demonstrate clear deliverability, good value for money and are financially sustainable.
  • Are led by organisations that are willing to share their experiences and learning, both honestly and widely.
  • Ideally reach 300 participants.

Deadline: Two-stage process.

  • Stage One:
    EOI submitted by Monday 20 August, 11.45pm
  • Stage Two:
    If your application is successfully shortlisted, you will be invited to submit a full application. You will have four weeks to do so.
