Fund title: Comic Relief Community Fund
Focus of fund/fund aims:
Grants to support small community organisations to build their capacity and respond to the COVID-19 crisis. Activities should address one of the Comic Relief strategic themes: supporting children under 5; tackling gender inequality; helping homeless people and migrants; supporting good mental health.
The Capacity Building Fund will close on 19 April 2021
Comic Relief and Groundwork are working in partnership to offer grants to support community organisations across England.
The Comic Relief Community Fund will invest in grassroots community-led organisations to bring about lasting change and legacy for local people. The fund has four main objectives and will support community-led organisations working to tackle Comic Relief’s four core themes:
Children Survive & Thrive: supporting children under the age of 5 to grow, play and learn in safe environments with people who love and care for them
Fighting for Gender Justice: projects that champion women and girls, including initiatives that help people affected by domestic violence, abuse or exploitation
A Safe Place to Be: projects that tackle homelessness and support people who are rebuilding their lives because of homelessness or forced migration
Mental Health Matters: projects that support good mental health in communities and tackle stigma and discrimination
The scheme will continue to offer Capacity Building Grants until 19th April 2021:
Capacity Building Grants – up to £1,000 to support small community organisations to become stronger and more robust and to improve their ability to deliver, both during and after the COVID-19 crisis
Grassroots community organisations and charities with an income of less than £250,000 per year can apply.
