The Fund will be available from Friday 18th October 2019 and will close at 5pm on Monday 18th November 2019
Whilst the funding must be fully allocated by 31st March 2020 applicants should consider how their proposals will contribute to the longer term need to develop programmes that support attitude and behaviour change and that look to address the underlying causes of violence both within individuals and in communities.
