BBC Children in Need: Main Grants

Youth

The BBC Children in Need Main Grants programme will consider applications requesting grants of over £10,000 to support projects for up to three years.

Registered charities and not-for-profit organisations in the UK can apply if they are 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 make a real difference to children and young people’s lives.

Organisations that already hold a grant from BBC Children in Need can apply for further funding providing the current grant is coming to an end within the next 12 months. Applicants will need to be able to provide convincing evidence of the differences the grant has made to the lives of the disadvantaged children and young people the organisation has worked with.

Deadlines: 16 January 2018, 17 May 2018 and 13 September 2018 (midnight).
