In the UK, Comic Relief supports work that aims to achieve at least one of the five themes by supporting organisations with the people, ideas and ability to tackle complex problems and create positive social change. Each theme has specific outcomes which applicants must address through their proposal. We are committed to sport as an approach and we welcome applications that use sport towards any of the themes. Our international grants seek to achieve a range of additional goals which we believe are crucial to creating a just world free from poverty. Most of our funding is for Sub-Saharan Africa and funding for work outside Africa is by invitation only. There are no funding deadlines for the UK programme and applications are accepted on a rolling basis.
