  • Corra Foundation #Shiftthepower

    Created: 03/08/2020

    The Corra Foundation is working in partnership with Comic Relief to deliver the #ShiftThePower Coronavirus Response Fund in Scotland. Communities and charities working in Scotland with an income of less than £250,000 can apply for grants up to £10,000 to support vulnerable families and communities, including coping with the impact of coronavirus. 

    This fund is an opportunity for community groups to amplify the voices of those furthest from power and deliver activities that fit into one of the four strategic themes: 

    • Children Survive and Thrive - early years development for children facing disadvantage; 
    • Gender Justice -  contributing to gender equality by reducing violence and discrimination based on gender and sexuality;
    • A Safe Place to Be - supporting people who have experienced homelessness or have been forced from their homes in order to live safely.; and
    • Mental Health Matters - improving mental health provision and tackling stigma around mental health.  

    This Fund is operating on a rolling basis. There is a total of £1.5million available and the programme will close when all funds are awarded.
