Children In Need – Small Grants

Up to £10,000 per year for up to 3 years
Current round open until Midnight 1 December 2017
Children & Young People Only


The Small Grants programme is open to charities and not-for-profit organisations applying for any amount up to and including £10,000 per year for up to 3 years. Projects working with children and young people of 18 years and under experiencing disadvantage through:
  • Illness, distress, abuse or neglect
  • Any kind of disability
  • Behavioural or psychological difficulties
  • Living in poverty or situations of deprivation
Projects funded make differences in children’s lives that help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they face. Projects achieve these differences by either working directly with children or seeking to improve their social and physical environments. In the Small Grants programme they are looking for projects where a relatively small amount of money can make a big difference for children and young people.
