BBC Children in Need: Small Grants

Youth

The BBC Children in Need Small Grants programme is open to charities and not-for-profit organisations in the UK applying for any amount up to and including £10,000 per year for up to three years (total request must not exceed £30,000).

Applicants must be supporting children and young people of 18 years and under 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.

The Small Grants programme looks for projects where a relatively small amount of money can make a big difference for children and young people. They are unlikely to fund applications which top up funding for salaries or larger projects where a small grant would only make a marginal impact on its success.

Deadline: 1 March 2018, 13 May 2018, 2 September 2018 and 2 December 2018, 11.59pm.
