Comic Relief launches new fund to support Covid-19 recovery

Comic Relief recently unveiled its new Change Makers programme, a £9.1 million initiative that will support vulnerable people across the UK during the recovery from Covid-19.

Working in association with 45 organisations from all areas of the UK, the programme will launch 20 new initiatives tackling issues such as homeless, domestic abuse and mental ill health.

By partnering with organisations such as VONNE Membership+ supporter Wearside Women in Need, Comic Relief hopes it can help create innovative solutions to problems it argues have been overlooked in recent years.

Samir Patel, CEO of Comic Relief, said the aim of Change Makers is to provide “long-term support and make a real positive impact on communities hardest hit by the pandemic.”
