Fund description:

Comic Relief and Groundwork have announced a new partnership to offer grants of up to £4,000 to support community projects 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 innovative projects that will tackle Comic Reliefs’ 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
Global Mental Health Matters: projects that support good mental health in communities and tackle stigma and discrimination

There will be capacity building grants of up to £500 and project grants up to £4,000.

Grassroots community organisations and charities with an income of less than £250,000 per annum can apply.
