Comic Relief have announced the launch of Core Strength – Local Communities for 2017/18. This 12 month programme is responding to the growing need of small locally led groups to cover their day to day costs. The aim is to provide funding for groups’ core costs - meaning expenditure that is not connected to delivering projects but focusing on investing in the organisation as a whole, such as basic running costs.
Grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 are available for organisations with an annual income of £100,000 or under in the last financial year.
The deadline for applications is Monday 16 October 2017. The second round of funding will open 15 January 2018.
