BBC Children in Need is the BBC’s UK charity which has raised more than £600 million since 1980 to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people living in the UK.
Registered charities, voluntary organisations, schools, churches and community interest groups can apply for either a Small Grant of up to £10,000 (for projects of one year) or a Main Grant exceeding £10,000 (for projects of up to three years).
Projects must benefit children and young people (aged 18 years and younger) who are experiencing disadvantage through:
- Illness, distress, abuse or neglect.
- Any kind of disability.
- Behavioural or psychological difficulties.
- Living in poverty or situations of deprivation.
Organisations must be working to combat this disadvantage and to make a real difference to children and young people’s lives.
Although applications are accepted throughout the year, there are specific deadlines and award dates.
The next deadlines for Small Grant applications are 1 June; 1 September; and 1 December 2016.
The next deadlines for Main Grant applications are 15 May and 15 September 2016.
