BBC Children in Need (CiN) have launched a new grant scheme that will support organisations to bring social action and youth empowerment opportunities to children and young people, to help prevent or overcome the effects of the disadvantages they face. They especially want to reach:
organisations who focus on addressing issues of disadvantage affecting children and young people
children and young people who have some experience of social action and want to develop their skills and experience to do more
children and young people who have no experience of social action work at all but want to find out what it is all about
Two programmes will be launched about sharing power with children and young people; a Youth Social Action Fund and We Move Youth Social Action Fund. The We Move Youth Social Action Fund is aimed specifically at Black led organisations and organisations that work with Black children and young people. You can find out more about the fund here.
To find out more visit the BBC Children in Need website here.
To apply for funding you must register to attend a one hour Information Session. Registration for the Information Sessions will close on Friday 8th April at 5pm.
Application forms will be sent out after the information sessions to those who have attended or watched a recorded version.
The deadline for submitting application forms is Monday 23rd May at 11.30am.
Decisions will be communicated to applicants by the end of August 2022
