Comic Relief Grants of up to 500,000 for Projects using Sport to improve lives of young people

Deadline: 14 June 2018

Comic Relief has launched the Safe, Secure, Settled fund which will invest in projects that are using sport to improve the lives of young people without a safe or secure place to live, helping them to gain the skills and resources to lead safe and positive lives.

Comic Relief Grants of up to 500,000 for Projects

Projects that support children and young people aged up to and including 25 and also family-based interventions where the majority of beneficiaries are under 25.

Applications are welcome for a minimum of 100,000 and a maximum of 500,000, over a period of between two and four years. Comic Relief will support projects being delivered in the United Kingdom, India, South Africa, Brazil or Kenya. Applications for work in India, South Africa, Brazil or Kenya can be made by a locally registered organisation directly delivering the project or in partnership with a UK-based organisation.

Your grant request should be appropriate to the size of your organisation.

Projects are expected to contribute to a minimum of one of the following outcomes:

  • Children and young people increase and/or sustain their engagement with education
  • Children and young people have increased pathways into training or employment
  • Children and young people increase life skills
  • More children and young people have a safe and supportive network or trusted place to go for advice

Comic Relief is interested in supporting a wide variety of projects and welcome bids from a diverse range of organisations.

It is looking for creative approaches to support young people without a safe or secure place to live. All proposals must use sport as a tool for social change in their approach.

It believes that projects developed and delivered in partnership with the people they aim to support will be more effective in creating positive social change. Projects like this are more likely to respond to the priorities of the people they are trying to reach and be more able to identify appropriate solutions. They may also benefit from greater accountability and legitimacy, and by empowering people to be part of the process, have the potential to build confidence and strengthen community cohesion.
