Children Survive and Thrive: Rise and Shine
Comic Relief has now launched funding which focuses on community action for early childhood development to help ensure all children have the best possible start in life, and grow into happy, healthy and confident individuals. The programme aims to support child-centred approaches, and to make progress in addressing the comprehensive development needs of children during their early years, up to and including their transition to primary school. These child-centred approaches should be founded on recognised good practice. Investments are made into organisations that directly support families with young children. Funding is available for 3 to 5 years with investments in the UK of up to £150K. Proposals can be made by single applicants, or by partnerships of two or three organisations that will receive funding. However, only one organisation can act as a grant holder.
Online applications for first stage applications open from 7 January until 22 March 2019. Shortlisted applications will then be given a further 7 weeks to submit a full proposal with a second stage deadline of 31 May 2019.
