BBC Children In Need - Main Grants
BBC Children in Need awards grants each year to organisations supporting disadvantaged children and young people in the UK. They give grants for children and young people of 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. Projects funded will make differences in children’s lives that help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they face. Projects achieve these differences by either working directly with children or seeking to improve their social and physical environments.
