Organisations interested in applying should read the guidance notes:
The main Voluntary Services Emergency Fund (VSEF) is funded by Welsh Government to support vulnerable people affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The VSEF model has been used to disseminate this Comic Relief funding. This VSEF grant is funded by Comic Relief from monies raised from the Big Night In. This grassroots funding aims to reach 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.
Applicants will need to demonstrate that they are working in line with one or more of Comic Relief’s Strategic Themes:
- Children Survive and Thrive: Actions to give children the best start in life and access to opportunities to achieve their potential
- Gender Justice: Actions to improve equality for women and girls
- A Safer Place to Be: Actions to help vulnerable people to improve their circumstances and safety
- Mental Health Matters: Actions to enable access to support and increase awareness
Apply now for a grant of up to £2,000
Projects must be completed by March 2021
More information about the four strategic themes of Comic Relief is available on their website.
