The Supporting and Sustaining Specialism Funding Programme is administered by Comic Relief in partnership with the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS). The £1.2 million fund has been made available through a grant from the Tampon Tax Fund.
The programme supports Comic Relief’s vision that women and girls should have equal power and agency in decision-making at all levels. To this end, Comic Relief has been funding organisations working to end gender-based violence.
The funding is intended to support organisations in England led ‘by and for’ Black and minoritised women and providing frontline services responding to violence against women and girls.
The deadline for applications is 5 March 2021 (12 noon) with notification of decisions by end of June 2021.
