BBC Children in Need Accepting Main Grant and Small Grant Applications
Funding for not-for-profit organisations that are working with disadvantaged children and young people who are 18 years old and younger living in the UK.
After a pause of six months, registered not-for-profit organisations that work with disadvantaged children and young people of 18 years and under who live in the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands can apply for grants of either up to £10,000 or from £10,001.
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 all applications is 11:30 am on 21 December 2020.
