BBC Children in Need grants

After a pause of six months, registered not-for-profit organisations that work with disadvantaged children and young people of 18 years and under, can again apply for Small Grants of up to £10,000 or Main Grants up to £100,000 from Children in Need.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the funder has temporarily broadened the types of applications it is accepting. Currently funding is being offered that can be used more flexibly than usual.

Applications are encouraged for:

  • Project delivery (Including staffing and salary costs)
  • Creative solutions to deliver much needed services
  • Organisational costs to support stability and adaptation. (Including the day-to-day running costs of an organisation as opposed to specific project costs)

All applications will have to show how this funding will make a difference to children and young people’s lives during this crisis.

Applications are not limited to one specific project and a request can be made for organisational running costs. The funder is committed to supporting voluntary groups with these types of grants.

The deadline for applications is 11:30 on 21 December.
