Comic Relief understands the importance of digital technology in modern life, and its potential to address some of our biggest social challenges. We see leveraging the power of digital as a key tool to help deliver social change across our funding initiatives.

In 2015, we launched a range of initiatives under the banner of Tech for Good. Below are some of the projects we have funded.

You can find out more about applying for our current funding initiatives here, where we welcome digital approaches. When there is a specific Tech for Good funding initiative, information and how to apply will be found here.

In October 2016 Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Comic Relief joined forces to support the best use of tech for good in the UK. We asked applicants to submit a project summary, a two-minute video and infographic.

Here you can find our top 50 applications, of which ten will receive funding.

We are sharing these to celebrate their ambitions, inspire others, foster collaboration and encourage more funding in this space. The ten projects we fund will be announced in April 2017. They will receive up to £50,000 (including access to tech experts, mentoring and support) to deliver a tangible development in their Tech for Good project, over four months.
