COVID-19 BAME RESILIENCE GRANTS

ATM’s COVID-19 BAME RESILIENCE GRANTS is there to help BAME voluntary sector to adapt, sustain core services, and thrive in this new challenging difficult environment we are all operating within.

The Anti-Tribalism Movement is a UK charity committed to tackling tribal discrimination and promoting fair and equitable societies. We have been working with the UK’s Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities since 2010.

In the of time working closely with our community partners across the UK at the grassroots level, we have had the first-hand experience on the impact COVID-19 has had on the Somali community in the UK. It is within this context we have published a Policy Briefing report on COVID-19 during the height of this pandemic.

In partnership with Comic Relief and National Emergencies Trust, we have launched ATM Resilience Grants to help BAME voluntary sector to sustain core services and thrive in this new challenging environment we are all operating in.

After launching the ATM Resilience Grants we have received 115 applications from the BAME voluntary sector in the United Kingdom, after a rigorous selection process there was 34 successful organisations who have been awarded grants to assist them to sustain their core services and adapt to the impact of COVID-19.

What this grant has demonstrated is the shared volume of the vast challenges faced by numerous BAME voluntary sector organisations. We have been fortunate to receive high volumes of quality applications and the limited resources available to us meant that we had to support limited applicants this time around.

The following organisations are the successful recipients of the ATM Resilient Grants.
