BBC Children in Need



Fund status: Open
Amount: Up to £100,000
Who they fund: Organisations
Funding category: Children and Young People

This scheme makes small and large grants available to not-forprofit organisations in the UK that 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 to make a real difference to children and young people’s lives. Applications can be made for either of the following:

  • Main Grants of over £10,000 can support projects for up to three years. There is no upper limit but very few grants over £100,000 are made and most grants are for much less.
  • Small Grants of up to £10,000 can support projects for one year.
