BBC Children in Need - COVID-19 Next Step Grants Programme

Wednesday, 1 July 2020 - 12:00pm

Grants of up to £80,000 are available to help not-for-profit organisations with more complex service adaption in their work with disadvantaged children and young people in the UK who are disproportionately affected by the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic.

BBC Children in Need is providing the COVID-19 Next Step Grant Programme as a separate programme to its Large Grants and Small Grants programme.

This new programme aims to fund sustained responses to the coronavirus/COVID-19 situation.

The funding will help organisations with more complex service adaption, including additional staffing requirements. It is designed to be as flexible as possible, covering a wide range of activities. Projects can last up to 18 months and begin in September 2020.

A second Next Steps programme is expected to open in October 2020
