Over the last 12 months BBC Children in Need (CiN) have been developing a new strategy for grant making, which will be launched in Spring 2022. This will include changes which will help them:
- Improve accessibility, equity, diversity and inclusion.
- Make it easier for projects to apply for funding.
- Help them put Children and Young people at the heart of everything they do
- Remain UK wide but work locally in communities across the country.
Due to this new strategy, they are pausing their Main and Small Grants Programme for new applications. However, they will be making some grants in early 2022 and continuing to fund and manage around 2,500 grants. They will be sharing more details in spring 2022
