In response to the coronavirus, BBC Children in Need has temporarily paused its current grants programmes and launched two new Covid-19 Response Grants. The aim of these new grants is to enable organisations to continue supporting disadvantaged children and young people aged 18 years and under.
The funding will be open to current grantees and new applicants, to help them to respond and adapt to the impact of the coronavirus.
Current grant-holders can apply for funding of up to £5,000, over a six-month period, through the Covid-19 2020 Booster Grants Programme, which opened on 18 May 2020.
From the 8 June 2020, registered not-for-profit organisations will be able to apply to the Covid-19 Large Grants programme for funding of up to £80,000 over an 18-month period.
Further details of these funds can be found on the BBC Children in Need website.Back to blog
