Don’t Miss Out On Grant Opportunities With BBC’s Biggest Fundraising Event Of The Year!

 The BBC’s Children in Need annual fundraising event returns this Friday, with the aim of raising a record-breaking amount of money to support disadvantaged children and young people across the UK.


If you are a UK Charity, or not for profit organisation that works with children and young people, you can apply for a share of the funds that are raised.


Last year alone the annual fundraising campaign raised £60m and since its inception in 1980 the charity has raised over £890m!


There are seven opportunities to apply for grants throughout the year. The last opportunity to apply for funding in 2017 closes on the 1 December.


Grants include:


  • Small Grants Programme, of up to and including £10,000 over three years, totalling £30,000. Grants can be applied for in March, June, September and December


  • Main Grants Programme, for grants over £10,000 per year for three years. There is no upper limit for main grants, but most grants are awarded under £120,000. Funding can be applied for in January and September


This year, Asda is supporting BBC Children in Need by raising money to fund projects that will enable disadvantaged children across the UK to develop vital life skills through play. This is something that is extremely important to the team at Sensory Guru!


The supermarket chain has raised over £17m for BBC Children in Need since 2000.
