The Comic Relief Community Fund – Grants for Smaller Organisations

There are two types of grants available to organisations whose work delivers on one of Comic Relief's four strategic themes one of which includes Mental Health Matters.

Under the Mental Health Matters theme, they are looking to fund projects that support good mental health in communities, improve access to support and tackle stigma and discrimination.

Funding is available to help you develop your organisation through a Capacity Building Grant or to deliver projects through a Project Delivery Grant.

This new programme aims to deliver long lasting community driven change and they will work closely with successful projects to gather learning from the programme to share widely.

Administration of the local funding is being managed by Groundwork, which specialises in transforming communities and the local environment for the better.

Funding available is:

Capacity Building Grants of up to £500 which will support small community organisations to become more robust and better able to deliver projects under one of the four themes.

Project delivery grants of up to £4000.

Examples of project which could be supported include:

  • 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

The Comic Relief Community Fund should be the main funding source for your project.
