Schools And Youth

Comic Relief works year-round to create fundraising materials and learning resources to inspire schools and young people to raise money at their schools and youth clubs.

We run two main campaigns, Red Nose Day and Sport Relief, which take place alternately each year.

The money we raise is used to fund projects that make a difference to people living incredibly tough lives, both here in the UK and across the world. Find out more about the projects we fund and access our learning resources below.
