Aims/priorities: Grants for not-for-profit organisations to define, test and develop digital solutions, or re-purpose existing technology in order to meet a social need or challenge in one of Comic Relief's core issue areas. The COVID-19 crisis has since increased the need for organisations to explore how digital and design approaches can be used to create more impact for the people they work with. The funding is most suitable for organisations or partnerships that have undertaken a small amount of early stage discovery work.
Who can apply? UK not-for-profit organisations can apply. To be eligible, applicants must:
- Be based in the UK for the work taking place in the UK.
- Have an income of between £75,000 and £10 million.
Partnerships or consortia between multiple not-for-profits that aim to work together to address or improve a service delivery problem in their area of work are welcome to apply. Applicants should be seeking to work in one or more of Comic Relief’s four core issue areas:
- Children Survive and Thrive
- Global Mental Health Matters
- Fighting for Gender Justice
- A Safe Place to Be.
Applications are also welcome that address challenges related to disability and inclusion outside of these themes.
Grant amount: Up to £70,000 per project.
Application process: Full details of the programme and application process can be found on Comic Relief’s website.
