#ShiftThePower Scotland Comic Relief Programme

#ShiftThePower Scotland Comic Relief Programme

Corra Foundation is excited to be delivering #ShiftThePower Scotland Comic Relief Programme as a funding partner with Comic Relief. The programme has two main strands:

1) A grant funding programme open to community groups across Scotland.

2) Support for Community led grant-making.

We will also deliver a programme of capacity building support for #ShiftThePower grant holders.

The grant funding programme closed for applications on 30th September. We are assessing the applications and our decision-making panel will meet later in the year to decide on the portfolio of work to fund.  The decision panel is comprised of people with lived experience of the four Comic Relief themes – Mental Health Matters, A Safe Place to Be, Gender Justice, and Children Survive and Thrive.

You can read more information on these themes in the criteria document.

We will announce the funding decisions in late December 2019.

This fund closed for applications on the 30th of September. 


The fund is delivered by Corra Foundation working as an intermediary partner with Comic Relief in Scotland.


To help you complete your application, we have produced the following short videos on key aspects of the application process.

The grant funding programme closed for applications on 30th September.

#ShiftThePower Scotland Comic Relief Programme supports groups with an income of £250,000 or less to make meaningful change in one of the four areas. Eligible groups can apply for grants between £1,000 and £8,000. We ask groups to tell us how they meaningfully involve people with lived experience in the design and delivery of their work.
