#ShiftthePower Scotland Comic Relief Programme


#ShiftThePower supports organisations with passionate people to make meaningful change in their communities.

Your work should fit into one of the two strategic themes:

  • Children Survive and Thrive – Supporting children to survive and thrive during the first years of life (0-5 years old) through targeted work and opportunities for children and families facing disadvantage.
  • Mental Health Matters – Supporting people with mental health issues or challenges to share their stories, live free from stigma and discrimination, and build positive relationships and experiences.

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.
