Comic Relief’s Local Communities programme will run for 18 months and during this time, grants of between £1000 and £10,000 will be 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.

Priorities for the fund are:

1. Improve people’s life skills, education, employability and enterprise
2. Maximise people’s ability to strengthen community cohesion and build social capacity
3. Provide people with opportunities to access local services, achieve greater social justice and to reduce inequality, exclusion and disadvantage
4. Advance people’s physical and mental health, wellbeing and safety

This is a rolling programme with decisions to be made in October 2015, March 2016, June 2016, September 2016, December 2016, March 2017
