New Grant Programme - Comic Relief 2015 Local Communities Grants

1 October 2015

The CCF welcomes applications for Comic Relief’s Local Communities programme for not for profit, voluntary or community groups and social enterprises in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. The Local Communities programme will run for 18 months and grants between £1,000 and £5,000 will be available.

Comic Relief made £4.5 million available to fund projects across the UK addressing local issues through the 'Local Communities' programme. Comic Relief is pleased to be working with UK Community Foundations (UKCF) and the network of Community Foundations across the UK to deliver the Local Communities programme. CCF is one of the delivery partners covering Cornwall and the IOS.

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.

Under the programme, organisations can apply for funding to ‘advance people's physical and mental health, wellbeing and safety’.

The application deadline date is on the 12th October 2015
