BBC Children in Need Main Grants Programme provides grants of over £10,000 per project to not for profit organisations that work with young people who are experiencing disadvantage through:
- Illness, distress, abuse or neglect
- Any kind of disability
- Behavioural or psychological difficulties
- And / or living in poverty or situations of deprivation.
There is no upper limit for Main Grants but BBC Children in Need make very few grants over £120,000 (or £40,000 per year) and most grants are for much less. To be eligible, projects must make differences in children’s lives that help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they face. Projects achieve these differences by either working directly with children or seeking to improve their social and physical environments.
The next deadline for applications is 13th January 2019.
