Looked after by Groundwork, The Comic Relief Community Fund (England), is offering two types of grants to grassroots community organisations with an income of less than £250,000.

The grants are available to organisations that work around on one of Comic Relief’s strategic themes:

  • Children Survive & Thrive

Designed to strengthen local organisations to drive community projects forward, the funding is available through two strands:

Capacity Building Grants (up to £500)

Designed to support a wide range of activities, from developing better organisational governance, policies and procedures, through to increasing organisational delivery capacity.

Project Delivery Grant (up to £4,000)

Aimed at supporting grassroots organisations to deliver projects that address Comic Relief’s four strategic themes (as listed above).

Because the Grants scheme is a continuous rolling programme; there is no deadline and so applications can be accepted at any time.
