BBC Children in Need – Project Grants

The funding is intended for not-for-profit organisations that work with disadvantaged children and young people, under the age of 18, living in the UK. 

The Project Costs stream has no application deadline – you can apply at any time

  • We will not fund any work that has already taken place, or any costs incurred, before the date we give you a decision.
  • The first step in applying for Project Costs is to fill in a short Expression of Interest (EOI) form online
  • Use the EOI form to tell us a bit more about your organisation, and the work you want us to fund
  • You’ll be able to access the EOI form in your online account when the funding stream is open
  • If we would like to support the work outlined in your EOI form, we’ll send you a full application form to complete
  • Our National and Regional Plans will help you understand how we prioritise decisions

How To Apply
Applications can be made at any time. There are no deadlines.

Groups requesting £15,000 or less will receive a quicker decision and be able to start sooner.

There is a two-stage application process:

  • An initial Expression of Interest form can be found on the Children in Need website.
  • Successful applicants will receive a link to the full application form and have 120 days to complete it.
