Over the first three years, the Places of Worship scheme has approved 134 grants worth approximately £1.5m to 63 churches, 49 to mosques, 5 to Hindu temples and 17 to Gurdwaras.

We received a high number of applications for the scheme in 2019/20 and will be informing successful applicants in the near future.
