Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

Thanks to the money raised by wonderful people like you, we fund hundreds of organisations which support the most vulnerable people in society. These are the people who will be hit hardest by coronavirus.

We're working to help the organisations we fund do whatever they can to respond to the coronavirus crisis.

We’re offering emergency funding and more flexibility to help organisations reshape their services so they can still be there for the people they help, including; those affected by mental health problems, domestic abuse, children living in poverty and people without a safe place to be, amongst many others.

New funding has already been given to FareShare to help them get more meals to vulnerable people across the UK, so people in our communities do not go hungry.

We’re all facing uncertainty and difficult days ahead, but one thing that hasn’t wavered is the astonishing generosity of our brilliant supporters.

It’s a real ray of light and we really, truly can’t thank you enough.


In light of the growing concerns around Covid-19 Comic Relief has rescheduled its Wembley Spectacular - due to take place on April 23, 2020 – to Thursday February 25, 2021.  All tickets remain valid for the new date. We will be in touch with all ticket holders very soon.

Refunds will be offered to anyone who is not able to attend the rescheduled date. Those who can no longer make the new date are also being offered the chance to donate the cost of their ticket to Comic Relief, to help fund projects supporting vulnerable people across the UK and internationally, instead of a refund.
