Comic Relief has announced a new £2 million programme to support small community led organisations across the UK.
The Core Strength Local Communities Grants programme provides funding of between £1,000 and £10,000 for up to 12 months to small local community organisations for essential core running costs. Only small groups with an annual income of up to £100,000 will eligible to apply. The initiative will sit under the Comic Relief programme of Building Stronger Communities – supporting groups who work to make their communities more connected, empowered and productive. The programme will be managed by UK Community Foundations on behalf of Comic Relief.
Application windows will open at different times across the UK, between August 2017 until July 2018. Please contact your local Community Foundation to find out more information.
