Find out whether your organisation is eligible for support.

Who processes the applications?

Kammarkollegiet (the Swedish Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency) reviews the applications and pays out the support if it is granted. The Swedish Police Authority is the referral body, which means that the Authority is involved and determines whether the measures are appropriate. The Police Authority may also provide other relevant information.

How do I apply for funding?

Fill out the application form on the left and send it to us. We will only consider applications if the information is complete and the required supporting documents are attached.

New law on extra security measures

The Swedish Government has decided that organisations may be granted support for the protection and guarding of buildings if they are vulnerable to violence, intimidation or harassment on the grounds of skin colour, national or ethnic origin, faith, sexual orientation, transgender identity or any other similar circumstance. The law came into effect on 1 October 2018.
