Comic Relief Local Communities programme 2015-17, apply now!
There are still many communities in the UK that suffer from economic and social deprivation and the current economic climate may make this situation worse. For this reason, Comic Relief has decided that monies should be available to fund projects across the UK which are addressing these issues through the ‘Local Communities’ programme
Comic Relief is pleased to be working with UK Community Foundations and Community Foundations across the UK, to deliver this Local Communities programme.
The Local Communities programme will run for 18 months and during this time, grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 will be available.
The programme aims to empower local people, enabling them to create lasting change in their communities. Projects should be run by people directly affected by the issues they are dealing with and priority will be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage that have a clear understanding of the needs of their community.
For this round only, Comic Relief is interested in funding projects that increase access to sport and exercise. Deadline: Friday 16th October 2015. For more information, please visit the CFFC Website,
