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 in the UK. We offer one of the only grant funding opportunities for social tech projects at any stage of their digital journey. We are committed to building the social tech ecosystem, which means both helping other funders become confident in funding tech projects, and helping social organisations become confident in using digital.
Our role has included all stages of funding, from designing the programmes, making and managing grants, evaluating initiatives, and sharing lessons with the sector.
We encourage the use and development of technology across each of the 4 themes we work in. Here are the social tech specific programmes currently running.
