The Trust distributes the funds raised each year as grants to organisations that work with disadvantaged children and young people, under the age of 18, living in the UK.
The Children in Need Grantmaking Strategy 2022-2025 focuses on the principles of:
- Sharing power with children and young people.
- Acting flexibly.
- Using its voice to build awareness and empathy around issues.
- Building partnerships to bring communities and investors together.
This stream offers core funding to organisations whose work aligns with these principles.
The core grants stream can support organisations for up to three years.
The maximum grant is £120,000 (or £40,000 over three years), though must grants made are for much less than this.
