FUNDING: Children in Need – Main and Small Grants programmes, deadline 21st December

Our Main and Small Grants programmes are for not-for-profit organisations applying for grants of up to three years.

We give grants for: Children and young people aged 18 years and under experiencing disadvantage through:

  1. Illness, distress, abuse or neglect.
  2. Any kind of disability.
  3. Behavioural or psychological difficulties.
