Comic Relief have launched a new £2.1 million Global Majority Fund to assist with Covid-19 response work within communities experiencing racial inequality.
The Fund will make 10-15 investments of between £150,000 – £250,000 to charities, voluntary and community organisations and other not-for-profit groups willing to act as intermediary technical partners, who have the ability, expertise, networks and knowledge to distribute rapid funding to a diverse range of locally-led and focused organisations across the UK. The funding will be available over 18 months.
These as intermediary technical partners will use the investment to make grants to smaller local organisations that are focused on addressing Covid-19 needs and priorities within BAME communities.
To help applicants to the Fund, Comic Relief are organising a number of Zoom Question and Answer sessions. Details are available on the Comic Relief website.
The closing date for applications is midday on the 30th November 2020.
