Today, Comic Relief announces its eighth year of Community Cash, a £1 million fund to support local community projects across parts of the UK.
Applications are now open for this year’s fund, with grants of £500 to £1,000 available to small organisations that are doing great work to help local people living tough lives.
Gilly Green, Head of UK Grants said, “The Comic Relief Community Cash initiative is extremely important to Comic Relief and enables us to help more than a thousand smaller projects in the UK. The grants can be used for a wide variety of needs, from equipment for disability sports clubs, to activities bringing communities together, to specialist training for volunteers providing essential support. We encourage any community group or project who are in need of some extra funding to apply for the grant through their local community foundation.”
