Choosing our partners
Red Nose Day and Sport Relief simply couldn’t happen without the amazing support and contribution that we get from our partners. They help us run call centres, produce and sell merchandise, manage our telephone systems and so much more.
We take the decision on which companies, organisations and bodies we partner with very seriously, and have a robust process to help us decide.
Comic Relief also requires its partners to ensure that all merchandise manufactured for Red Nose Day or Sport Relief fundraising purposes outside of the EU is produced in factories that comply with the Ethical Trading Initiative standard or equivalent. The Ethical Trading Initiative is recognised as a leading international standard amongst global retailers and major charities and trade unions.
Our strategic partners are an integral part of Comic Relief. Without them, Red Nose Day and Sport Relief simply couldn’t happen. We’ve worked with these companies for many years and their support is as appreciated as it is essential.
There is a handful of very special organisations who Comic Relief is proud to have as long-term partnerships. They do brilliant things for us, are committed fundraisers and have been for years. We consider them old friends, and their support is incredible.
From collecting thousands of donations via the web and call centres to helping us with our technological needs throughout the year, and even doing their own fantastic fundraising, our technology partners make every campaign we do possible, and we’re very grateful indeed.
UK funding partners
We work in partnership with a number of UK organisations to jointly fund the tackling of issues in areas where we feel we can help each other and have the greatest impact.
International funding partners
Our international funding partners are a collection of like-minded organisations who we work with to support and jointly fund exciting and innovative projects that have far-reaching effects in tackling poverty and social injustice.
We’re always on the lookout for innovative ideas and products that can raise money for Comic Relief all year round.
If you have a brand, character or other asset that you think we might be able to use, we’d love to hear from you. Here are just a few of the great products and brands that raise money, either for life-changing projects or to help Comic Relief to run itself.
Comic Relief is the proud owner of Monkey. We not only license him to be the face of PG tips, but he also has his own merchandise range. If you want to make or sell Monkey products, just contact our friends at Bulldog Licensing.
Comic Relief holds the rights to print and publish the Harry Potter Companion Book: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We license it to publishers in the UK and internationally. To find out more contact us.
