BBC Children in Need COVID-19 Response Grants

BBC Children in Need is looking to fund projects that enable meaningful change for disadvantaged children and young people.

BBC Children in Need gives grants for children and young people aged 18 years and under experiencing disadvantage through:

  • Illness, distress, abuse or neglect
  • Any kind of disability
  • Behavioural or psychological difficulties
  • Living in poverty or situations of deprivation

The work they fund make differences in children's lives that help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they face. Funded organisations achieve these differences by either working directly with children or seeking to improve their social and physical environments.

The following grants are available:
