Corra Foundation - #ShiftthePowerScotland Comic Relief Programme
Created: 01/08/2019, Updated: 15/06/2021
The Corra Foundation's #ShiftThePower fund supports organisations with passionate people to make meaningful change in their communities.
Your work should fit into one of the two strategic themes:
Gender Justice: contributing to gender equality by reducing violence and discrimination based on gender and sexuality alongside increased opportunity, empowerment, and understanding for women, girls, and LGBTQI+ community.
A Safe Place to Be: supporting people who have experienced homelessness or have been forced from their homes in order to live safely. This includes enabling people who have faced or are facing homelessness to resolve their situation and get support as well as supporting those who have been forced from their homes to build a new life, free from conflict, persecution, or trafficking. Groups to be supported are those affected by homelessness, including refugees and asylum seekers.
People with lived experience of the strategic themes are central to this programme and they are particularly interested in organisations where projects and services are initiated and led by people with lived experience.
There are two other #ShiftThePower themes (Mental Health Matters or Children Survive and Thrive— for children under age 5), which will open separately later in 2021.
