The Fare Network (FARE) and the Football v Homophobia (FvH) campaign have launched a grant scheme to support events and activities to challenge prejudice and exclusion of the LGBT+ community.
Grants of up to €500 are available across Europe to support action aimed at making football and its structures inclusive to all and increasing the participation and representation of LGBT+ people in the game.
Activities and tournaments can be supported in countries where the LGBT+ community still face barriers. Applicants should also consider hosting events that aim to deepen LGBT+ inclusion strategies, including the production of educational resources, and create debates around the topic.
Louise Englefield, Director of FvH, said: “The partnership with FARE has helped us build an international campaign tackling anti-LGBT+ discrimination in football.
“With support from the network we have built positive relationships across Europe, reached new communities, and supported initiatives for LGBT+ inclusion at all levels of the game.”
Piara Powar, Fare Executive Director, said: “Many LGBT+ people still face violence, discrimination and exclusion from mainstream society, February is an important period to drive change in a unified way.”
These activities should take place during the Football v Homophobia month of action in February 2018.
The application process is open from 22 November until 22 December at 6pm. To apply click here.
