UK Community Foundations is supporting Comic Relief to deliver a £2 million investment into supporting small community led organisations across the UK. 

The Core Strength Local Communities Grants programme provides funding for essential core running costs for grassroots organisarions, that are often the first and sometimes only point of support for individuals and communities trying to make a difference in their lives.

The initiative will sit under the Comic Relief programme of Building Stronger Communities – supporting groups who work to make their  communities more connected, empowered and productive.

Grants between £1,000 and £10,000 for up to 12 months are available to small local community organisations with an annual income of up to £100,000.

The application window will be open at different times across the UK, between August 2017 and July 2018.
