Comic Relief – Power Up


Resourcing women’s and girls’ movements for change

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 find and support women and girl’s movements to seed, sustain and strengthen change in the UK, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Zimbabwe, India, Nepal and Bangladesh.

The funding is intended to support the development of specific work (such as campaigns, advocacy and/or services) when it is part of long-term change. There is also interest in supporting work which helps movement constituents develop a common agenda for change, such as developing and sharing analytic frameworks, learnings and research, and work that is focussed on base building, such as growing membership and leadership, building/growing/supporting alliances and solidarity both between and within movements.

This fund is for women and girl led organisations only

Grants of up to £300K for single applicants, or up to £500k for partnerships are available.
