Project delivery grants of up to £4000 will support grassroots organisations to deliver projects that address Comic Relief’s four strategic themes. Projects should be able to clearly show, the local need for the project, robust planning, and legacy.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Please note we can no longer accept applications for project delivery funding from the Mental Health Matters theme as funding for this theme has now been allocated. You can however still apply for funding from this theme from our capacity building or COVID-19 Community Funds. We will continue to accept applications for project delivery funding from the three other Comic Relief themes – Children Survive & Thrive, Fighting for Gender Justice and A Safe Place to Be.

To apply for a grant start by taking the eligibility quiz:


Examples of project delivery grants: 

  • 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
  • Setting up a peer support network for people experiencing homelessness
  • Hire of room where homeless people can access support

This list is not exhaustive and there will be many other types of projects that can be funded. all projects must be completed in 12 months. Core organisational costs, may be included but the fund will not fund projects which only contribute to organisational general running costs or solely a continuation of services. Project delivery grants do not require match funding, however if they do the Comic Relief Community Fund should be the main funding source.
