Project delivery grants of up to £4000

Project delivery grants of up to £4000 will support grassroots organisations to deliver projects that address Comic Relief's four strategic themes. Projects should be able to clearly show, the local need for the project, robust planning, and legacy.

Comic Relief's strategic themes are:

  • Children Survive and Thrive
  • Fighting for Gender Justice
  • A Safe Place to Be

They can no longer accept applications for project delivery funding from the Mental Health Matters theme as funding for this theme has now been allocated. You can however still apply for funding from this theme from their capacity building or COVID-19 Community Funds.

They will continue to accept applications for project delivery funding from the three other Comic Relief themes listed above.

They want to support community led organisations to deliver change by drawing on the 'lived experiences' of people who have experienced the issues being tackled.

The types of projects they fund is very broad. This could be hiring venues to run activities, paying co-ordinators to manage volunteer-led services, paying staff to lead activities or training sessions, employing outreach support workers, improving indoor and outdoor facilities to reach new groups or paying volunteer expenses to deliver activities and services. They can also fund items, materials and equipment needed for your project. This list is not exhaustive, and consideration is given to any projects that can deliver against one of the four strategic themes.

Comic Relief will only fund not for profit organisations with an annual income level of £250,000 or below. Organisations should be based in and deliver services in a local area and have local people involved in the running of the organisation. Organisations eligible to apply include:

  • Constituted voluntary and community organisations
  • Charities
  • Social Enterprises
  • Community Interest Companies

Projects must be completed within 12 months of receiving a grant.
