Joining Hands for Laughter and Change: Our Business Supports Red Nose Day

March 13, 2024

Why Red Nose Day Matters

Red Nose Day is more than just a day to wear red nose; it’s a inclusive day that unites millions of people across the UK to raise money and awareness for Comic Relief. This charity works tirelessly to create a just world, free from poverty, and has raised over £1.5 billion since its inception.

The Impact of Comic Relief

Comic Relief is committed to supporting a variety of initiatives that address critical issues such as poverty, injustice, and climate change. Last year alone, they awarded £75.4 million to various organisations, making a significant difference in countless lives. Their funding approach is centered around four key priorities:

  1. Equity, diversity, and inclusion: Investing in organisations led by and for communities facing inequity, exclusion, and discrimination, and using learning and storytelling to promote justice.
  2. Participation and lived experience: Engaging with people who have direct experience of the issues Comic Relief funds to ensure their work meets the needs of these communities.
  3. Learning-led: Continuously engaging with funded partners to drive improvement and understand the impact of their funding on social change.
  4. Trust in relationships: Recognising the power imbalance traditionally held by funders and engaging in open dialogue to understand partners’ needs and reduce barriers.

Some of the specific areas they focus on include:

  • Alleviating poverty: Funding programs that help people and communities overcome challenges they face due to poverty.
  • Tackling injustices: Supporting organisations and movements that strive for fairness and equity.
  • Climate change: Working with those most affected by climate change, particularly in vulnerable areas.

Additionally, Comic Relief supports innovative approaches to social change through initiatives like:

  • Pop Culture for Social Change: Utilising the power of mass media to shift public opinion and drive policy change.
  • Sport for Change: Leveraging the unifying power of sport to engage people across various divides and provide alternatives to traditional services.

In recent years, Comic Relief’s Change Makers programme has funded 20 new initiatives involving 45 organisations across the UK. These projects tackle serious issues that have seen increased demand for help, including homelessness, domestic abuse, and mental health.
