The European Commission is calling for proposals for projects that aim to use sport to support the integration of refugees into local communities.
Grants of up to €60,000 will be made to support approximately 20 projects put forward by legally constituted locally based sports clubs and organisations where the activities to be delivered are aimed at promoting participation of:
- The sharing of activities and good practices about participation of refugees into sport activities with the clear aim of integration into host societies
- Awareness-raising on the practical and proved added value of sport in relation to the integration of refugees into societies; etc.
A wide range of organisations including schools, local authorities and not-for profits can apply.
The deadline for proposals to this call is 18th August 2017.
