BBC Children In Need - Small Grants Programme

Closing date

Grants for not-for-profit organisations that are working with disadvantaged children and young people who are 18 years old and younger living in the UK. Grants of up to £10,000 are available per year for up to three years (£30,000 total request).

Priority will be given to smaller, local organisations, and as a result the funder will rarely support organisations with an annual turnover of more than £2 million in the most recent, complete financial year.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the funder has temporarily broadened the types of applications it is accepting. Currently funding is being offered that can be used more flexibly than usual.

Applications are encouraged for:

  • Project delivery (Including staffing and salary costs)
  • Creative solutions to deliver much needed services
  • Organisational costs to support stability and adaptation. (Including the day-to-day running costs of an organisation as opposed to specific project costs)
