BBC Children in Need are teaming up with Glamorgan Voluntary Services (GVS) to hear proposed projects in need of funding from local organisations who work with disadvantaged children.

A surgery to discuss the project ideas and obtain advice on whether funding is possible will take place at Barry Community Enterprise Centre between 10am and 5pm on Thursday, March 1. Those interested in applying should forward an outline of their project proposal by email to or post to GVS, Barry Community Enterprise Centre, Skomer Road, Barry, CF62 9DA.

Applications must be received by Friday, February 23 and successful applicants will be advised of their appointment time by Tuesday, February 27.

BBC Children in Need supports projects that work with disadvantaged children and young people aged 18 years and under living in the UK, who face a range of challenges such as living in poverty, being disabled or ill, or experiencing distress, neglect or trauma.

BBC Children in Need funds two types of grants, its Small Grants Programme is for grants up to and including £10,000 to support projects for up to three years. The charity’s Main Grants Programme is for grants in excess of £10,000 per year to support projects for up to three years. All projects funded by the charity must demonstrate a positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged children and/or young people under the age of 18.
