As we rebuild towards a “New Normal” the Community Foundation and Comic Relief are mindful of the many issues that need to be addressed along our recovery journey. Many people and communities have endured hardship, loss, grief, isolation, inequity and social injustice.
Our Comic Relief Community Support Programme opens today and offers grants between £5,000 and £20,000. Recognising and addressing injustices and inequalities that have been deepened by Covid19 and ensuring #No-oneLeftBehind.
