The Places of Worship security funding scheme is a key Home Office commitment in the Hate Crime Action Plan.

Officials have actively promoted the scheme visiting mosques, gurdwaras, churches and temples, as well as attending faith-based roundtables. In addition, the scheme uses an Independent Advisory Panel, consisting of representatives from the Christian, Muslim, Sikh and Hindu faiths, to assess applications.
