The Common Ground Initiative is co-funded by DfID and seeks to make a more strategic investment in small and African Diaspora organisationsand in doing so, makes a greater contribution to a just world, free from poverty. Comic Relief has had a long standing commitment to small and Diaspora organisations for many reasons; Diaspora organisations frequently bring their intellectual, political, social and cultural skills and resources to bear on the development initiatives they support, while small organisations often have a development ‘niche’ that gives their work clarity of focus and expertise. The central plank of the Common Ground initiative is grant-making. Beyond grant making, we aim to strengthen the capacity of small and Diaspora organisations in the UK so they can become more effective. We will create opportunities for the varied and important voices and experiences of Diaspora and small organisations to influence UK development debates and international development practice.

Prosperity Fund work in China consists of a portfolio of seven thematic programme areas, separated into three phases. The seven programmes are directly complementary, aligned with China’s key economic priorities and are in areas where the UK has expertise.
