BBC Children in Need
If your charity works with disadvantaged children and young people, Children in Need could be the funder for you. The charity has identified seven 'building blocks' that it sees as essential for young people to achieve their potential:
- Being physically safe
- Being physically well
- Being emotionally well
- Having strong self-belief
- Having positive relationships
- Having essential skills
- Being positively empowered
Projects should help children and young people to move past disadvantage, and in turn, strengthen these 'building blocks' in their lives. Children in Need provides two levels of grants:
- Small Grants - grants of up to £10,000 per year, for up to 3 years
- Main Grants - grants of over £10,000 per year, for up to 3 years
There is no formal upper limit on the size of Main Grants, but the charity advise that it is unusual for them to fund more than £40,000 per year - and most grants are for much less.
The next deadline for applications for both the Main Grants and Small Grants is midnight on 1st June.
Applications should be made via the online forms on the Children in Need website.
