The BBC Children in Need is currently open for applications and invites charities and not-for-profit organisations working for Disadvantaged Children.
The aim of the programme is to make differences in children’s lives that help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they face. Projects achieve these differences by either working directly with children or seeking to improve their social and physical environments.
The Programme awards grants for Children and young people of 18 years and under experiencing disadvantage through:
- Illness, distress, abuse or neglect
- Any kind of disability
- Behavioural or psychological difficulties
- Living in poverty or situations of deprivation
Charities and not-for-profit organisations may apply for grants over £10,000.
- Not-for-profit organisations that work with disadvantaged children and young people of 18 years and under who live in the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.
- Applicants currently having a Main Grant, as long as their funding is coming to an end within the next 12 months can apply for further Main Grant funding to keep running the same project, or on a different project, providing convincing evidence of the differences, grant has made to the lives of the disadvantaged children and young people they have worked with.
- Applicants currently having a Small Grant can also apply for a Main Grant as long as it is for work with a different group of children and young people.
Note: Applicant can usually only have one application assessed in any 12-month period.
