Children in Need’s Small Grants Programme provides grants to charitable organisations that are supporting children and young people of 18 years and under who are experiencing disadvantage through:
o Illness, distress, abuse or neglect.
o Any kind of disability.
o Behavioural or psychological difficulties, and/or
o Living in poverty or situations of deprivation.
Organisations must be working to combat this disadvantage and to make a real difference to children and young people's lives. Eligible projects will make these differences by either working directly with children or seeking to improve their social and physical environments.
Priority will be given to projects where a relatively small amount of money can make a big difference for children and young people.
The Small Grants programme offers grants of up to £10,000 per year for up to 3 years (or up to £30,000 in total). There is no requirement for match funding.
Not for profit organisations working with children and young people aged under 18 in the UK, the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man may apply for a grant.
All applicants are required to refer to Children in Need’s A-Z Guidance before applying.
Further information about the Small Grants programme is available on the Children in Need website, where information about its Main Grants programme can also be found.
