The Comic Relief Community Fund Now Open

Groundwork has announced a new partnership with Comic Relief 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

The programme opens today, Monday 16 September 2019, via an online application process. To register interest, applicants can email comicrelief@groundwork.org.uk
