What is the Shared Endeavour Fund?

The Shared Endeavour Fund is a £800,000 investment by City Hall and Google.org to empower communities to tackle violent extremism and a rise in hate crime offences in London. ISD joined MOPAC and Groundwork in the panel that awarded grants of up to £50,000 to more than 30 grassroots organisations to build resilience within their communities.

Building on our work with the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC), and a long-standing relationship with Google.org aimed at empowering and resourcing civil society through initiatives such as the Google Innovation Fund and Google.org Impact Challenge, ISD is building an innovative model that unites civil society, businesses and local governments around the mounting challenge of hate, polarisation and extremism. ISD is working to replicate and adapt this successful model to other cities around the world through the Strong Cities Network.
