BBC Children in Need Main Grants

Main Grants: Should I apply?

The Main Grants programme is open to charities and not-for-profit organisations applying for grants over £10,000 per year for up to three years. Check the information below to see if your project should apply. But first – have you read about how, together, we improve children’s lives in the UK.

If you are looking for any amount up to £10,000 for one year, see Small Grants.

They give grants for...

Children and young people of 18 years and under experiencing disadvantage through:

  1. Illness, distress, abuse or neglect

  2. Any kind of disability

  3. Behavioural or psychological difficulties

  4. Living in poverty or situations of deprivation

Projects they fund 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.

Who can apply?

  • Not-for-profit organisations that work with disadvantaged children and young people of 18 years and under who live in the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.

  • If you currently have a Main Grant, as long as your funding is coming to an end within the next 12 months you can apply for further Main Grant funding to keep running the same project, or on a different project. You will need to be able to provide convincing evidence of the differences our grant has made to the lives of the disadvantaged children and young people you have worked with.

  • If you currently have a Small Grant you can also apply for a Main Grant as long as it is for work with a different group of children and young people.

How much to apply for?

  • The Main Grants Programme is for grants over £10,000 per year to support projects for up to three years.

  • There is no upper limit for Main Grants but they make very few grants over £120,000 (or £40,000 per year) and most grants are for much less.

  • Each year they are asked for much more money than they are able to give. Requests for larger amounts are always more competitive.

  • If you wish to apply for a smaller amount their Small Grants Programme or our Emergency Essentials Programme may suit you better.

Initial application deadline - 11:59pm 13th January 2019

When is the final decision due? June 2019

For more information and to apply please visit - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/60DXlxYvbbtcTDm79Mjryj/main-grants-should-i-apply

John Moores Foundation

John Moores Foundation is a registered charity, established in 1964, that gives money to community organisations doing charitable work. We focus on funding projects based in Merseyside (including Skelmersdale, Halton, and Ellesmere Port) and Northern Ireland.

 

They aim to enable people who face barriers, as a result of social, educational, physical, economic, cultural, geographical or other disadvantage, to improve their social conditions and quality of life. 

They do this by making grants to local groups that fall within our areas of interest. Priority is given to small, grass-roots and volunteer driven organisations.  

 They are an enabling funder and would like to help groups achieve their targets and outcomes in their own way. If a group receives a grant from the Foundation, additional support may be offered to the group by our Community Groups Development worker in areas such as fundraising, strategic planning and trustee development, and by our Monitoring & Evaluation Worker to set up systems that best meet their needs, capacity, etc.

Application forms are only available from our offices. Click Here to request the form from the Northern Ireland office.
