BBC Children in Need, working in partnership with BBC Radio 1Xtra, have launched a £10 million programme to empower Black children and young people through youth social action. The ‘We Move: Youth Social Action Fund’ is open to not-for-profit organisations across the UK currently working with disadvantaged children and young people, at least 75% of whom self-identify as Black, to empower them to use their voice to tackle subjects that matter to them. This could include activities such as influencing, fundraising and volunteering. The programme will provide £1 million per year for 10 years. Grants of up to £15,000 for unregistered organisations and up to £50,000 for registered organisations will be available for projects lasting up to 18 months.
There will be information sessions on the following days:
• 16 May 2022 (10am).
• 19 May 2022 (5.30pm).
• 23 May 2022 (12pm).
• 30 May 2022 (11am).
The deadline for applications is the 20th June 2022.
