Temporarily closed for new applications.
The world around us is constantly changing, yet we are acutely aware that Comic Relief’s application process hasn’t altered much in several years. With this in mind we are currently reviewing our strategy and funding process and therefore are temporarily closed for new applications.
There may be funding programmes later in 2022 and we recommend to check back for more information on these. We will always ensure there is a reasonable time between promoting a programme and its deadline, and if you check monthly you shouldn’t miss an opportunity to apply.
