BBC CHILDREN IN NEED & TIME TO CHANGE GRANTS FUND

 

BBC CHILDREN IN NEED – MAIN GRANTS PROGRAMME (UK) UG5200

 

Funding is available to not-for-profit organisations in the UK that are supporting children and young people of 18 years and under who are experiencing disadvantage through:

  • Illness, distress, abuse or neglect.
  • Any kind of disability.
  • Behavioural or psychological difficulties.
  • Living in poverty or situations of deprivation.

 

Organisations must be working to combat this disadvantage and to make a real difference to children and young people’s lives.

Grants of over £10,000 are available to support projects for up to three years.

There is no upper limit but very few grants over £100,000 are made and most grants are for much less.

TIME TO CHANGE GRANTS FUND (England) UG4142

Applications are currently being accepted to support projects in England that address mental health stigma and discrimination by bringing people with and without mental health problems together.

Projects should change attitudes and behaviour by engaging local communities in meaningful conversations about mental health. The Fund is particularly keen to receive applications from projects run in partnership by one or more organisations. People with experience of mental health problems must be involved in the planning and development of the projects at all levels.

Registered charities, constituted community groups, faith organisations, community interest companies, constituted voluntary organisations, social enterprises, and co-operatives may apply for grants of between £10,000 and £100,000. Most grants will be in the amount of £10,000 to £40,000.

Of the grants fund, 25% will go to projects run by and for people from Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities, and 20% will go to projects working with children and young people in the South East with a focus on Kent.

Projects should:

 

  • Improve public attitudes and behaviour towards mental health issues which leads to more people facing less discrimination in relation to their mental health.
  • Improve the confidence and ability of people with mental health problems to take action to tackle stigma and discrimination.
  • Improve the confidence of people with mental health problems to engage in and contribute to the life of their community.

 

Round 3 applications are due by 30 April 2013 (2pm).
