Our mission combines Comic and Relief. We believe that helping others can be easy and fun, even in the face of the challenges we face every day. We believe this because we’ve seen the power of people coming together to create change over our 30+ year history.

When we come together to help others, we unleash the best in all of us. We fund and partner with organisations that support people in a crisis but are also building a better future for us all by focusing on prevention and the root causes.

We are immensely grateful for your support, whether you decide to donate a philanthropic gift, fundraise through your professional or personal network, host an event or including us in your legacy plans.

Let’s create change together.

The impact of poverty, conflict and climate change continues to be felt further and wider – and we need your support more than ever. Thank you for your kind and generous support of this Red Nose Day.
