Comic Relief’s Community Fund Welcomes 2020 Applications from Across England

| Return|

Grassroots community organisations and charities with an income of less than £250,000 per annum can apply now for funding to support projects that tackle at least one of Comic Relief’s four strategic themes:

  • Children Survive & Thrive: projects that support children under the age of five years to reach their potential and have the best start in life.

  • Fighting for Gender Justice: projects that improve equality for women, girls and initiatives that help people affected by domestic violence, abuse or exploitation due to their gender.

  • A Safe Place to Be: projects that support people who are rebuilding their lives because of homelessness or forced migration.

  • Mental Health Matters: projects that support good mental health in communities, improve access to support and tackle stigma and discrimination.

Two types of grants are available:

  • Capacity building grants of up to £500 will support a wide range of activities, from developing better organisational governance, policies and procedures to increasing understanding of beneficiary needs, to increasing organisational delivery capacity.

  • Project delivery grants of up to £4,000 will fund direct work with beneficiaries. This could be training for parents and carers to help support their children’s development before starting school; activities for girls or women to help them make healthier life choices; supporting people with mental health issues to improve an outdoor space or create a meeting space; or setting up a peer support network for people experiencing homelessness.

This is a rolling programme and applications can be made at any time.
