#TogetherWeCan Change the Lives of Children Across the UK

BBC Children in Need works towards a time when every child in the UK has a childhood which is safe, happy and secure, and allows them the chance to reach their potential.

Children in Need provides grants to projects in the UK which focus on children and young people who are disadvantaged. They are currently supporting 2,400 projects all across the UK. The projects they fund help children facing a range of disadvantages for example poverty and deprivation; children who have been the victims of abuse or neglect or disabled young people.

The BBC Children in Need Appeal Night takes place every year in November. The Appeal show is a whole evening of entertainment on BBC One with celebrities singing, dancing, and doing all sorts of crazy things to help raise money.

£25 can fund an activity workshop for a group of children in a hospice, giving them the opportunity to express their feelings, have fun and enjoy their childhood.
£50 could pay for a specialist carer to visit and support a seriously ill child at home, improve her wellbeing and making her feel less isolated.
£100 could get a teenage girl whose dad has died ongoing support from a counsellor to help her manage her grief, explore the pain and isolation she feels, and equip her for a bright future.

Together we can make a difference.
