FUNDING: Re-Rooted, Comic Relief – apply by 26 March

Funding for organisations that specialise in supporting refugees and asylum seekers in the UK. 

Grants are available for up to £200,000 over 3 to 5 years through Comic Relief’s Re-Rooted: Safety and Security for Refugees & Asylum Seekers programme.

The programme overs flexible, core funding to continue and reinforce organisations’ work.

Proposals should focus on:

  • services and support for refugees and asylum seekers
  • influencing and advocacy focusing on safer routes and improved outcomes for refugees and asylum seekers
  • or a combination of both.

Proposals are also welcomed which are tailored to the needs of refugees or asylum seekers, or both. 

Priority will be given to organisations that involve people with lived experience of forced migration to the UK.

Proposals for service delivery should be holistic, to better meet multiple needs of refugees and/or asylum seekers. This can be delivered by the applicant organisation alone, or in partnership with others. 

Influencing work could take place at the local or national level, either by the applicant or by working with others to effect change. It should be based on evidence of real need among refugees and asylum seekers.

The closing date for applications 12 noon on the 26 March 2024.
