Comic Relief have announced a new funding opportunity for organisations that will make a significant contribution to their sector.
Change Makers is focused on creating change in the wider world, whether locally or nationally. This could be through developing new ways of working in the wake of Covid-19, contributing evidence that will move things forward, cross-sector collaboration which recognises the way issues intersect, advocacy and campaigning work, or other change making efforts that are relevant to Comic Relief’s social change themes of; Homelessness, Forced Migration, Gender Justice, Mental Health, and Early Childhood Development.
Your proposed work must contribute to change not only for your own organisation or beneficiaries, but for the wider sector.
20% of the available funding has been ring-fenced for projects led by and working with BAME communities. Requests can include core funding and project delivery costs with grants between £150,000 – £600,000 over 3 to 5 years available.
Change Makers opens for applications week beginning 13 July 2020 and closes at 12 noon on 28 August 2020. Full details of the Expression of Interest are available now so you are able to begin working on your application ahead of the opening date.
