BBC Children in Need Main Grants Programme – First 2018 Deadline

BBC Children in Need Main Grants programme is currently accepting applications from charities and not-for-profit organisations in the UK that support children and young people who are 18 years and younger.

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

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 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.

The closing date for applications is 16 January 2018 (midnight).
