Comic Relief grant for gypsy and traveller projects

Comic Relief grant for gypsy and traveller projects

As the 10th Comic Relief event gets nearer, and its fundraising activities increasingly dominate media reports, it is worth remembering that the charity is also a major grant-making organisation.

One of Comic Relief’s smaller grants programmes is The Small Grants Fund for Gypsy & Traveller Projects, which applies throughout the UK.

Groups are invited to apply for funding from this fund which is aimed at helping to set up Gypsy and Traveller groups at a local level to address many of the social problems faced by these groups. Grants of £3,000 are available to help with the running costs including office and administration expenses, such as telephone, rent, insurance and heat and light; stationery and printing; sessional worker and volunteer costs; travel costs; computer and equipment costs; consultancy costs; and other costs of running a project.

Applications can be made at any time.
