The Safer Communities Fund is a Crown fund that provides communities at risk from hate crimes and terrorism with funding to upgrade and/or implement security arrangements. Organisations that receive grants through the Safer Communities Fund are expected to show how the proposed security upgrade or project will:
– help reduce the threat and impact of future hate crimes and terrorism against their community;
– build the confidence of their community so that they can continue practising their faith, and continue congregating and maintaining their community networks in a safe and secure environment.
