Two types of grants will be available
Small grants £1,000 – £10,000- the aim of this fund is to ensure that comic relief grassroots funding is reached by the community groups leading change and growth in their locality; enabling them to make positive changes in response to the specific needs of the community
Large grants (for organisational growth) £30,000 – £60,000 – The aim of the grants for organisational growth is to give organisations the chance to make a strategic impact and to increase resilience
