Comic Relief Local Communities - Core Strength Programme

This 12-month programme responded to the growing need of small locally-led groups to cover their day-to-day costs. The aim was to provide funding for groups’ core costs - meaning expenditure that is not connected to delivering projects but focusing on investing in the organisation as a whole, such as basic running costs. We know securing core funding can be tough and want to used this programme to help support those doing much needed work in their local communities. 

There will be no further rounds of funding for this fund. Please sign up to our monthly grants ebulletin (opens in a new window) to stay up to date with our grants that are currently open.
