To Improve Young people’s Live – BBC's Children in Need Small and Main Grants Programme


National charity Children in Need is currently making a call for applications from local organisations and community groups that help children and young people in the UK.

Children and young people have the right to a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential.

Part of the work that BBC’s Children in Need (CIN) carry out to achieve this is through making grants to charities and other non-profit organisations that support and work with children and young people who are disadvantaged and face challenges in their lives.

CIN are offering grants to projects that work to make differences in children’s lives and help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they may face; whether it is through working directly with children or seeking to improve their social and physical environments.

CIN say the projects they will fund should:

  • Take the initiative and show clearly how they will make a difference which will improve children and young people’s lives.
  • Address the challenges that 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, and/or
  • 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.

CIN are particularly interested in hearing from and want to help applicants from projects working in the Medway area.

Currently the deadline for applications for their Small & Main Grants Programme is 21st December 2020, with further dates to be announced later in the season.

For more information and how to apply, visit the Children in Need website. You can also contact CIN by email at

Children in Need’s Grants Programme is one of many subjects that is explored further with participants of MVA’s Funding and Marketing Club, designed to help delegates and attendees improve their skills, knowledge and confidence in generating income and raising the profile of their organisation, contact MVA for more information and how to take part.
