Comic Relief has launched Power Up, a funding opportunity focused on strengthening women’s and girls’ movements.The aim of this programme is to support a diverse range of women’s rights organisations to fight against systems which perpetuate the injustices they encounter in their daily lives. Comic Relief wants to work with women and girl-led organisations, partnerships, consortia and women’s funds who are supporting women to have collective power, build movements and become change agents. This fund is for women and girl led organisations only.
Grants will be offered for 3-5 years for the following total amounts:
- Single organisations can apply for grants between £150,000 up to £300,000
- Those working in partnership (2 or more organisations), up to £500,000
- For women’s funds or others sub-granting we may consider larger grants (up to £750,000)
The deadline for first stage applications is the 7th of December 2018 at 12pm GMT.
