BBC Children in Need's grant programmes are now open for applications. The criteria and application forms for both the main and small grants have been amended.
The Main Grants programme is open to charities and not-for-profit organisations which wish to apply for grants over £10,000 per year for up to three years.
The next application deadline is 15 May 2013.
The Small Grants programme is open to charities and not-for-profit organisations applying for any amount up to and including £10,000 for one year.
BBC Children in Need advise that in this programme "we are looking for projects where a relatively small amount of money can make a big difference for children and young people. We are unlikely to fund applications which top up funding for salaries or larger projects where a small grant would only make a marginal impact on its success".
The next application deadline is 1 April 2013.
Both main and small grants programmes are open to not-for-profit organisations that work with disadvantaged children and young people of 18 years and under who live in the UK, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands.
