Comic Relief is pleased to be working with UK Community Foundations across the UK, to deliver the Local Communities Programme. The local delivery partner for Calderdale is the Community Foundation for Calderdale.
The Local Communities programme will run for 18 months and during this time, grants of between £1,000 and £10,000 will be available.
The programme aims to empower local people, enabling them to create lasting change in their communities. Projects should be run by people directly affected by the issues they are dealing with and priority will be given to small, locally based groups or organisations in areas of disadvantage that have a clear understanding of the needs of their community.
