How we spend your money

The cash you raise is spent by Comic Relief, to change lives at home and abroad. In the UK, you help give shelter to young people living on the streets and protection to those living with domestic abuse. Across the world, your money helps children into education, and provides communities with fresh water and life-saving vaccines. And that’s just the start.
