The BBC Children in Need Main Grants programme is open to charities and not-for-profit organisations applying for grants over £10,000 per year for up to three years.
BBC Children in Need give grants for…
Children and young people of 18 years and under experiencing disadvantage through:
1. Illness, distress, abuse or neglect
2. Any kind of disability
3. Behavioural or psychological difficulties
4. Living in poverty or situations of deprivation
BBC Children in Need fund organisations working to combat this disadvantage and to make a real difference to children and young people’s lives.
The Mentoring and Befriending Foundation (MBF) worked in partnership with BBC Children in Need to develop good practice guidance around mentoring and befriending for their grant assessors to use when considering applications.
BBC Children in Need recognises the value of MBF’s Approved Provider Standard, a nationally recognised quality standard. Further information can be found in BBC Children in Need’s funding advice document (in the section on ‘Mentoring and Befriending’) for completing application forms.
The next deadline is: 15 January 2015 (decision made mid June 2015)
