The BBC Children in Need Emergency Essentials Programme supports children and young people up to 18 years old who are facing difficult circumstances.
The programme is currently open for applications from referral organisations who will be able to apply for grants on behalf of families and young people.
The fund will cover the purchase of critical items such as:
- essential household items
- washing machines
- fridges and freezers
- baby equipment
- children’s beds and bedding
Applications must be completed by a registered referrer who is part of an organisation supporting the family or young person, and capable of assessing their needs.
