Maximum value: £120,000

Application deadline: 28 May 2019

BBC Children in Need awards grants each year to organisations supporting disadvantaged children and young people in the UK.

Their Main Grants programme is open to charities and not-for-profit organisations applying for grants over £10,000 per year for up to three years. They give grants for children and young people of 18 years and under experiencing disadvantage through:

  • Illness, distress, abuse or neglect;
  • Any kind of disability;
  • Behavioural or psychological difficulties;
  • Living in poverty or situations of deprivation.

Projects they fund 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.

If you currently have a Main Grant, as long as your funding is coming to an end within the next 12 months, you can apply for further Main Grant funding to keep running the same project, or on a different project. You will need to be able to provide convincing evidence of the differences our grant has made to the lives of the disadvantaged children and young people you have worked with.

If you currently have a Small Grant you can also apply for a Main Grant as long as it is for work with a different group of children and young people
