Our 2009-2012 strategy has now come to an end. We are currently finalising our new grants strategy which will be launched later this year. We will open for applications in September 2013 so please check nearer the time for more details.
Most of Comic Relief’s grant making is structured around specific programmes. These define which group of people or issues we want to support to help bring about change. We use these programmes, alongside our grant-making guidelines, to inform how we allocate our funds.
For 2009-2012, we have selected a number of focus areas that build on our previous knowledge and experience. Each programme has a clear strategy that states what we want to achieve and how we will go about it. You will need to read through the relevant programme information before completing an application form.
Below we describe each UK and International programme area, how we see Comic Relief’s contribution within a wider context, and the change that we aim to make.
