BBC Children in Need

BBC Children in Need is currently accepting applications from the following types of organisation working with disadvantaged children and young people in the UK aged 18 years old and younger:
o Registered charities;
o Voluntary organisations with a constitution;
o Community Interest Companies;
o Schools; and
o Churches.
Agencies can apply for either a Small Grant up to £10,000 for projects of one year or a Main Grant exceeding £10,000 for projects up to three years.
Children and young people should be experiencing disadvantage through:
o Illness, distress, abuse or neglect;
o Any kind of disability;
o Behavioural or psychological difficulties; and/or
o Living in poverty or situations of deprivation.
Projects should:
o Take the initiative and show clearly how they will make a difference in children and young people's lives.
o Address the challenges the children and young people face, build their skills and resilience, empower them and extend their choices in life.
o Involve children and young people in the design, delivery and evaluation of their work.
o 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.
The Small Grants programme is looking for projects where a relatively small amount of money can make a big difference for children and young people.
The Main Grants programme offers grants over £10,000 to support projects for up to three years. PLEASE NOTE: there is no upper limit for Main Grants but very few grants over £100,000 are made and most grants are for much less.
The grants are to be used for direct project costs that relate clearly and wholly to a project. Costs can include salaries, volunteer expenses, building hire and travel.
In many cases project costs also include less delivery-focused aspects such as line management, administration, insurance and utilities.
Match funding is not required.
The next deadline for Small Grant applications is  Tuesday 1 December 2015.
The next deadline for Main Grant applications is Friday 15 January 2016.
