Comic Relief Local Communities Programme (Oxfordshire)

The Oxfordshire Community Foundation has announced that the next closing date for the Comic Relief Local Communities programme is the 13th October 2016.

Not for profit organisations such as community groups, resident associations, community centres, social enterprises, CIC’s and credit unions can apply for funding of between £1,000 and £5,000 for projects that empower local people enabling them to create lasting change in their communities. Organisations can apply for funding to promote reduction of isolation and disadvantage and access to local services; and advance people’s physical and mental health, wellbeing and safety.

The type of activities that can be supported include:

  • Community sport activities
  • Furniture projects
  • Projects providing access to benefits advice
  • Projects combating fuel poverty
  • Food co-ops; etc.

Projects should be run by people directly affected by the issues they are dealing with and priority will be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage that have a clear understanding of the needs of their community. A Local Communities grant must be at least 30% of the total cost of the project.
