WHAT WE'VE ACHIEVED SO FAR
Tackling the key issues of our time since the start
We have invested over £1 billion since 1985, supporting vulnerable people and communities in the UK and overseas. Through humour and stories of hope, we’ve shown that people can make a massive difference.
WHAT WE'RE DOING NOW
We are working with local organisations in the UK and around the world who’ve proven that their approach to solving peoples’ problems work - and we invest in them as they grow.
For the last ten years we’ve supported work that meets the needs of children and young people, including, making sure they are protected from violence, exploitation and abuse, have improved access to quality non-formal education and training and more.
Comic Relief has been funding work around safe and secure shelter for marginalised communities for over 25 years. We have supported essential services to support people who are homeless across the UK. We have also supported psychosocial support for refugees and asylum seekers as well as helping communities in informal settlements across the world improve their own communities.
Comic Relief has been funding work tackling gender-based violence and supporting women and girl’s activism globally since we began. In the UK we’ve supported community organisations delivering vital services like the National Domestic Violence Helpline and supported organisations working together to create big changes, like the Refugee Women’s Charter.
Mental Health has been a priority for Comic Relief’s funding in the UK for over ten years we have invested in therapeutic services, services for young people, campaigning and policy change work, anti-stigma and discrimination work and maternal mental health.
We believe sport and physical activity has the power to bring about positive social change for individuals and communities. Comic Relief has been funding Sport for Change projects since 2002.
We believe digital technology has the power to accelerate positive social change by helping people, organisations and communities do a better job. Comic Relief is a sector leader in funding Social Tech. We offer one of the only grant funding opportunities for social tech projects at any stage of their digital journey.
