Communities, Culture, Educating & Young People, Health | Clwyd, Dyfed, Gwent, Gwynedd, Mid Glamorgan, Powys, South Glamorgan, West Glamorgan

Grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 are available.

The programme aims to empower local people, enabling them to create lasting change in their communities. Projects  should be run  by people directly affected by the issues they are dealing with and priority will be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage that have a clear understanding of the needs of their community.

Comic Relief supports work where there is clear evidence of beneficial impact on people and communities who are excluded or disadvantaged through low income, rural or social isolation, age, disabilities, race, sexuality or gender.

Grants will be awarded to innovative projects that:

•           increase local services,

•           build skills of local people,

•           increase community cohesion

•           respond to local economic needs
The next round will open on 20th January 2014 and the closing date for the next round is:

February 14th 2014 at 5pm.

An online application form will be available from January 20th 2014.
