Comic Relief grants: Tackling Violence against Women and Girls

20 April 2018

Comic Relief has announced a new fund, "Tackling Violence against Women and Girls" to support organisations that are working to end violence and abuse experienced by women and girls across the UK.

"Proposals are welcome from across the UK. We expect to make up to 40 grants of £60,000 to £120,000 for between one and three years. We may award grants larger than £120,000 to those bidding in partnership with others.

"We expect this to be a highly competitive funding initiative, so applicants must clearly demonstrate how they will address one or more of the aims listed below.

Aims of the fund

"This funding is exclusively focused on women with multiple and complex needs and aims to:

  • Enable organisations to better support women within the target groups.
  • Showcase how women’s lived experience can inform the design and delivery of services, practice and policy.
  • Provide opportunities for projects to try out new ways and models of working, for example by acting earlier, building community assets or using digital approaches.
  • Enable cross sector partnerships to work together to provide high quality support.
  • Support approaches that can provide learning for other organisations and stakeholders across the sector.
  • Improve access to support for women with complex needs in less well-served communities, such as Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee, older women, Lesbian, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex, disabled women."
