BBC Children in Need – Grant Programmes Open Now
Voluntary Action Leeds
BBC Children in Need: Main Grant and Small Grant Programmes are now open to applicants.
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, not-for-profit organisations that work with disadvantaged children and young people of 18 years and under who live in the UK can apply for grants of either up to £10,000 per year over 3 years (Small Grant) or from £10,001 per year over 3 years (Main Grant).
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. There will be further rounds, the next probably around spring time.
