Funding to Support the Core Costs of Organisations Working with Children 

Active Derbyshire, Active Notts, Funding, News

Not-for-profit organisations working with children and young people aged 18 or under can apply for grants from BBC Children in Need of up to £40,000 per year for up to three years to support their core costs.

Core costs funding can be spent on the applicant’s day-to-day operations.

Organisations seeking funding in excess of £15,000 per year are required to be registered with the appropriate regulatory body, such as the Charity Commission and Companies House.

While the grant programme prioritises smaller, local organisations, exceptions are made for certain cases. Organisations with an annual turnover exceeding £1 million can still apply if they fall into categories such as housing associations.

The grants encourage organisations to operate within their communities, particularly during challenging times. Emphasising the involvement of children and young people in every stage, from project design to execution, the initiative seeks to address their challenges, foster skill development, build resilience, and empower them with expanded choices in life.

There is no closing date. Applications can be made at any time.
