Grants and Funding

BBC Children in Need – Information Sessions

Logo for BBC Children In Need

The Braid Arts Centre, Ballymena - Monday 10 April 2017 - 11am-1pm

This year because of the generosity of everyone who donates to the charity, over £4m will be spent on projects working with disadvantaged children and young people here in Northern Ireland.

BBC Children in Need want to ensure that everyone who is involved in this work, no matter how small your project, knows about the opportunity to secure some funding to support positive outcomes for children and young people in Mid and East Antrim.

BBC Children in Need will be coming to Ballymena to encourage new applications and to explain how our grant strategy works out in practice.

For small grants of less than £10,000 they are basically open all year round with 4 decision dates and a turnaround period of 2 months. Applicant can now apply for small grants for up to three years. For main grants of more than £10,000 there are 3 closing dates in the year and it is a 2-stage process, taking 5 months to complete. All our funding is focused on the outcomes you hope to achieve through your project.

They would like to explain their approach to you in more detail, both generally about the charity and their aims, and to give you a chance to talk specifically about your project to one of their staff.
