"Thank you to all colleagues and customers at Bank of Scotland for continuing to go above and beyond in support of BBC Children in Need. The staggering amount of money you have raised over the last two years as our Principal Partner will enable the charity to reach more disadvantaged children and young people and make a bigger difference in their lives for years to come."

Simon Antrobus, Chief Executive of BBC Children in Need



Every penny donated to BBC Children in Need directly helps children and young people across the UK. 

BBC Children in Need is the BBC's UK corporate charity. Thanks to the support of the public, they’re able to make a real difference to the lives of children all across the UK.

BBC Children in Need’s vision is that every child in the UK has a safe, happy and secure childhood which allows them the chance to reach their potential.

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

BBC Children in Need grant programmes are open all year round for applications. Small grants awards four times a year and main grants three times a year.

Every penny from the money donated by the public will go towards helping disadvantaged children and young people right here in the UK. BBC Children in Need are able to make this promise because they use investment income and Gift Aid to cover all running costs, meaning that you can be sure your money makes a real difference.
