WHO WE ARE

Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK, with a vision of a just world, free from poverty.

We work all year round to help make our vision a reality. And in the years since we started out in 1985, with the support of some remarkable people, we've achieved amazing things and raised over £1 billion.

The difference we've made

OUR MISSION

To drive positive change through the power of entertainment.

Since we first set up shop in 1985, we’ve been doing three main things…



Two big campaigns

We raise millions of pounds, mainly through our two big fundraising campaigns: Red Nose Day and Sport Relief.


Tackling poverty and injustice

We spend the money raised to tackle the root causes of poverty and social injustice in the UK and across the world.


Raising awareness

We use the power and influence of our brand to raise awareness of issues where we feel we can make the biggest impact.
