BBC Children in Need have launched the Covid-19 Next Steps Grants programme. Eligible organisations can apply for grants of up to £80,000 to deliver support for children and young people affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Projects need to commence in September 2020 and can last for up to 18 months. The programme is designed for established organisations who are already delivering work in their communities and further afield. To be eligible, organisations must be registered with the appropriate regulatory body, such as your nation’s Charity Commission or companies House (unless the organisation currently holds a BBC Children in Need grant).
BBC Children in Need will not be accepting applications from educational institutions (including schools), prisons, hospitals or other statutory bodies.
The deadline for applications to this programme is the 1st July 2020.
