Funding for Projects that Support Disadvantaged Young People (UK)

Grants of over £10,000 per project are available through the BBC Children in Need Main Grants programme to registered not for profit organisations and special schools that work with young people who are experiencing disadvantage through illness, distress, abuse or neglect; any kind of disability; behavioural or psychological difficulties; and / or living in poverty or situations of deprivation.

Applications should demonstrate how your project will change the lives of children for the better.

Grants of over £10,000 are available with no upper limit stated, however, BBC Children in Need make very few grants over £120,000 (or £40,000 per year)

Organisations eligible to apply will be not for profit i.e. special schools; registered charities; voluntary organisations; churches; and community groups, etc.   In the case of special schools this must not be for work that they have a duty to fund.

To apply organisations will need to register with BBC Children in Need by submitting an Organisation Registration form. To complete an Organisation Registration Form, please read the Organisation Registration Form Guidance.  Once an organisation is registered, BBC Children in Need will send a link to fill in a Main Grants Project Application Form.  Registrations can be made at any time of the year.

The next deadline for applications is the 4th May 2020.
