The aim of this fund is to support local grassroots organisations (income less than £250K) to respond to the needs of vulnerable individuals, families and communities during the Covid-19 crisis, and to recover from the impact on services.
The fund will provide grants of £4,000 to organisations for them to respond to the current crisis, and £1,000 to help them recover through enhanced capacity building grants.
Organisations should deliver projects that provide community benefit across one of Comic Relief’s strategic themes:
- Children survive and thrive
- Fighting for gender justice
- A safe place to be
- Mental health matters
Of particular interest are applications from charities who support LGBTQ communities and communities of colour, that have been disproportionately affected by the crisis.
