Comic Relief has created a £9.5m fund from surplus investment income to "support innovative ways to tackle relief of poverty". Their annual report reveals that the New Fund was set up in 2014/15 and provided funding to three projects totalling £350,000. Comic Relief says the fund will become "fully operational in 2016". And that it "will be proactively seeking proposals from organisations that we feel have bold, creative and innovative approaches".
