BBC Children in Need Information Sessions

BBC Children in Need Main and Small Grants Programme Information Sessions Wednesday 9 and Thursday 10 December 2020.  

BBC Children in Need is now open for applications. After suspending the standard responsive grant programmes to support the Covid-19 response, the new Main and Small Grants programme is now open.

There is one deadline of 11.30am on 21 Dec 2020. (Please note: The time is different to previous grant rounds.)

The Small Grants scheme will award grants of up to £10,000 per year for a maximum of 3 years.

The Main Grants scheme will award grants over £10,000 per year for a maximum of 3 years. They are unlikely to fund grants totalling over £100,000 over 3 years, or more than £40,000 in years 1 or 2.

You can apply for a Main Grant or a Small Grant, but not both. The round is expected to be very competitive.  They strongly suggest that you take a strategic view to your requests based on what the organisation requires to deliver the project.

Applications can be submitted to continue existing Main or Small Grants or to fund new work.  If you have a Covid-19 Response Grant (Next Steps or Inspiring Futures Grant) you can apply but they may take this into consideration throughout the process.

There is no registration process for this round and previous registrations (successful or unsuccessful) will not be taken into consideration.  You need to create a new application form for this grant round. Please do not submit any forms that you may have started earlier in the year.

If your grant ends before 1 Jul 2021 they suggest you apply for the deadline of 21 Dec 2020.  If your grant ends after 1 Jul 2021 we would suggest you wait to apply to a second planned grant round due to go live at the beginning of April 2021.

Whilst the deadline and the process has changed, they are still looking for projects that enable meaningful changes for disadvantaged children and young people. They ask that you help them understand how disadvantage effects the children and young people and how your activities will lead to measurable differences in their lives.

They will be holding two drop-in information sessions around the process and programmes on the dates and times below. If you wish to join us at one of the sessions please use the corresponding Zoom details:
