Organisations in Plymouth can apply for small grants for events promoting inclusion and diversity in the city.

Plymouth City Council is working with Plymouth Drake Foundation to provide small grants of up to £2,000 to organisations in the city who promote inclusion and integration across any of the following protected characteristics:

  • Age
  • Disability
  • Faith, belief and religion
  • Gender
  • Gender reassignment
  • Marriage and civil partnership
  • Pregnancy and maternity
  • Race

Councillor Dave Downie, Cabinet Member for Safer and Stronger Communities for Plymouth City Council said: “Plymouth is a diverse and welcoming city and in the current climate it is more important than ever now that we do all that we can to make everyone feel welcome and a part of the city. These small grants give local minority groups the opportunity to celebrate and for different members of the community to come together in Plymouth. We want to promote better cohesion amongst all of Plymouth’s diverse communities.”
