Black History Month: Request for Applications

Southwark Council’s grants programme for events to celebrate Black History Month this October is now open for applications 

Every year throughout October people, schools, libraries, groups and organisations host events and get involved with the celebration of Black History in order to  

  • Celebrate the talent, achievements and contributions of Southwark’s new and established black and ethnic minority communities
  • Provide opportunities for informal learning
  • Inspire, motivate and encourage the participation of Southwark’s diverse communities
  • Promote social cohesion by sharing histories and cultures

A limited number of Small (up to £500) and Large (up to £2,000) grants are available to help achieve this

Each year has a different theme through which the programming is guided. This year it is:  

'Black history Month - Celebrating the past and  embracing the future'

Who can apply?  Grants are available to legally constituted groups and organisations wanting to run events, activities and workshops taking place in Southwark from 1 to 31 October 2017 that are open to all residents

How to apply Grant application documents and guidance are available via the Black History Month page below:

The closing date for applications is Monday 26 June 9am. We will not assess proposals received after this closing date
