In response to the conflict between Israel and Hamas, the Home Office is re-opening applications to the Protective Security for Mosques Scheme for an additional six weeks. The application process is now open until 18 February 2024.

The scheme is open to all Mosques and associated faith-buildings in England and Wales who have experienced hate crime at their site, or who feel that their faith community is vulnerable to hate crime. Through the scheme, Mosques can apply for measures such as CCTV, secure fencing, and intruder alarms to be installed at their site to improve security against hate crime. Mosques are also able to apply for the provision of security guarding services. All measures provided by the scheme will be supplied and installed free of charge.
We encourage you to promote the scheme to Mosques and Muslim community centres in your local area and networks who have experienced hate crime, or feel they are vulnerable to it.

An application can be made via Application Portal for Protective Security for Mosque Scheme. For further details on what the scheme covers, the application process and supporting guidance, please visit Protective security schemes for places of worship - GOV.UK

Please also note that in response to the conflict between Israel and Hamas, and reports of increased incidents of antisemitism in the UK, the Prime Minister has announced additional funding of £3 million as part of the Jewish Community Protective Security Grant (JCPSG), for the Community Security Trust to provide additional security at Jewish schools, synagogues and other sites.
