Charities and not-for-profit organisations working with disadvantaged children and young people in the UK who are 18 years old and younger can apply now for a small grant.

The BBC Children in Need Small Grants programme will consider applications requesting grants of up to £10,000 to support projects for up to three years with a total request of £30,000.

Registered charities and not-for-profit organisations in the UK can apply if they are supporting children and young people of 18 years and under who are experiencing 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 combat this disadvantage and to make a real difference to children and young people’s lives. Eligible projects will make these differences by either working directly with children or seeking to improve their social and physical environments.

Priority will be given to projects where a relatively small amount of money can make a big difference for children and young people.

Organisations that already hold a grant from Children in Need can apply for further funding providing the current grant is coming to an end within the next 12 months. Applicants will need to be able to provide convincing evidence of the differences the grant has made to the lives of the disadvantaged children and young people the organisation has worked with.

There are usually four application rounds per year.

The next deadline for applications is 13 May 2018.
