BBC Children in Need Grant programmes

 BBC Children in Need has reopened its Main and Small Grants programmes and will be hosting an additional online funding information session for representatives from organisations who are considering applying.

Our Main and Small Grants programmes can provide grants of up to three years to organisations supporting 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 we fund make differences in children’s lives that help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they face. Further information on the programmes can be found at

The team in Northern Ireland will be hosting an additional Zoom information session on the new programme on Friday 11th December at 12pm. Please let us know if you would like to attend by contacting Sinead Tierney at or by calling 02890338221, advising us of which session you would like to attend.
