Big Lottery Fund is contributing £5 million and Comic Relief £500,000.
The five-year funding partnership will also involve examining what wider benefits such collaboration can bring to the sector.
Kevin Cahill, Chief Executive of Comic Relief, said:
“By working together we hope to increase learning about good grant making, and share these findings with the sector. Of course, the ultimate aim is to ensure that funding gets to where it is most needed and is as effective as possible in making a true and lasting impact in people’s lives.”
