BBC Children in Need continue their call for applications from charities and not-for-profit organisations in the UK that support children and young people who are 18 years and younger.
BBC Children in Need are providing funding through their Small Grants Programme to not-for-profit organisations in the UK that support children and young people of 18 years and under who experience 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 challenge and overcome this difficulties and to make a real difference to children and young people's lives.
To qualify, projects should:
- Be able to successfully show clearly how they will make a difference in children and young people's lives.
- Deal with the challenges the children and young people face, build their skills and resilience, empower them and extend their choices in life.
- Involve children and young people in the design, delivery and evaluation of their work.
- Be keen to keep learning about their work so that their ability to make a difference in children and young people's lives can keep on improving.
Grants of up to £10,000 are available for to support projects for one year.
The grants are to be used for direct project costs that relate clearly and directly to a project. These can include salaries, volunteer expenses, building hire costs and travel costs.
In many cases project costs also include less front-line aspects such as line management, administration, insurance and utilities.
Children in Need have advised that match funding is not required.
For this season, the deadline for Small Grants is 1st June 2017, with further dates to be announced later in the year.
