NCVO’s recent Financial Sustainability Review highlights how the voluntary sector is responding to significant shifts in policy and resourcing. In parallel there is growing scrutiny of the charity sector and higher expectations around transparency and accountability. And at a global level, the UN Sustainable Development Goals will be ratified in September 2015, with commitments for every member government, not just to the world’s poorest people but to tackling rising inequality, including here in the UK.

Given that context, Comic Relief feels it’s the right time to pause a little and take stock, to ensure we are efficient, effective and evolve appropriately as a partner, grant maker and social investor.

We won’t be accepting proposals to their UK Main Fund after midday 1 October 2015 although funding for small grants in the UK up to £10,000 remains available through UK Community Foundations.

We’ll be making some gradual changes, which we’ll communicate more widely in early 2016.
