Comic Relief and the KFC Foundation announce partnership and welcome funding applications

13 January 2020

Comic Relief and the KFC Foundation, the charitable arm of KFC, have joined forces to launch a 3-year partnership, channelling their shared vision to help young people across the UK fulfil their potential. 

Together with Comic Relief, the KFC Foundation aims to raise £3million by 2022 in a bid to help organisations in local communities provide safe social spaces, mentoring, employment and social skills for young people.  

As part of this exciting new initiative, Comic Relief and the KFC Foundation have launched the ‘Future Lookin’ Good’ fund, giving UK organisations who share their values the opportunity to apply for funding.

Whether it’s by providing holistic support through mentoring or coaching, building life skills or improving young people’s ability to gain sustainable employment, the fund recognises that early-intervention is key to ensuring young people can create a positive future where they can live with dignity, and create a happy home in which they feel safe and secure. 

Proposals should focus on young people aged 11 – 25 years old from groups under-served by current services and should be working with one or more of the following priority groups; homelessness, young people at risk of, or with experience of the criminal justice system, care leavers, young carers and young parents. 

Organisations will need to create a 2-3 minute video and write 250 words about their project to apply.
