#ShiftthePower Scotland Comic Relief Programme
This programme supports community-led grassroots organisations and charities to make a meaningful change in their communities. Voluntary or community organisations that are registered as a charity in Scotland and have an income of less than £250,000 can apply for funding ranging from £1,000 up to £8,000. Funding must be fully spent by June 2021 and their work should fit into one of the following four strategic themes:
- Children Survive & Thrive – early years development for children facing disadvantage.
- Gender Justice – contributing to gender equality by reducing violence and discrimination based on gender and sexuality.
- A Safe Place to Be – supporting people who have experienced homelessness or have been forced from their homes in order to live safely.
- Mental Health Matters – improving mental health provision and tackling stigma around mental health.
The deadline for applications is 30 September 2019. The programme is delivered by Corra Foundation working as an intermediary partner with Comic Relief in Scotland.
