Charity description

BBC Children in Need logo
Since BBC Children in Need began we’ve raised over £740 million. With the help of our fantastic supporters, we are able to change the lives of around half a million disadvantaged children and young people in the UK every single year.

Our vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood and the chance to reach their potential.

We provide grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are truly disadvantaged. We are local to people in all corners of the UK and support small and large organisations which empower children and extend their life choices.

Every penny from the money you raise or donate will go towards helping disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK. We are able to make this promise because we use investment income and Gift Aid to cover all running costs, meaning that you can be sure your money makes a real difference.

Reg. charity England & Wales no. 802052 and Scotland no. SC039557
