Following a period of review, during which national Comic Relief programmes were closed for applications, Comic Relief have released details of their refreshed grant strategy.
Their grant making will focus on four key programmes areas, these being:
- Investing in children and young people to be ready for the future
- Empowering women and girls to be free to lead the lives they choose
- Improving the health and wellbeing of vulnerable and disadvantaged people
- Building stronger communities in areas of disadvantage, deprivation and poverty
Whilst Comic Relief will continue to accept applications in set grant programmes they plan to work much closer than ever before with funded organisation in order to create strong partnerships and co-create new initiatives. This will see the creation of ‘invitation-only’ grant opportunities.
We advise regularly checking the Comic Relief website for news of current and future grant programmes.
