As well as the main grant programme, Comic Relief has a small grants programme which is administered by Community Foundations.
Local Communities gives grants of £1000 to £10,000 a year and the programme is currently open for applications.
The grants are awarded to support work where there is clear evidence of a sustained beneficial impact on the lives of people who are excluded or disadvantaged through low income, rural or social isolation, age, disabilities, race, sexuality or gender.
Priority is given to small, locally-based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage that have a clear understanding of the needs of their community and are undertaking actions as a means of addressing these needs.
If you want to apply for a Local Communities grant, contact your local funder from the Comic Relief website.
