The London Borough of Barking & Dagenham (LBBD) organises a range of events and projects to celebrate and promote equality and diversity.
The Equality and Diversity Community Fund gives local charities and community groups a greater role in delivering events. These are events that relate to the Barking & Dagenham Equality and Diversity Calendar. The aim is to create new and engaging projects to benefit residents.
Projects should promote social inclusion, celebrate diversity, and support equality through providing opportunities for people with protected characteristics.
There are four funding windows, during the year, when you can apply. If you are not successful with your first application you are encouraged to apply again.
