Comic Relief Community Cash grants of £500-£1,000 are available to small organisations in Wiltshire and Swindon that are doing great work to help local people living tough lives. Eligible organisations include charities, social enterprises, co-operatives, Community Interest Companies, and constituted voluntary and community groups.

The Jack Lane Charitable Trust
It is the Trust's policy that donations will benefit organisations or individuals in north Wiltshire or south Gloucestershire. It is very unusual for awards to be made in excess of £2000, although the Trustees sometimes offer a grant spread over two or more years to achieve more effective support.
In general awards are only made for specific projects rather than for non specific requirements like general administration.
