Happy Kid

Each year Cash for Kids supports thousands of children from birth to 18 years old who are ill, disabled, underprivileged or who simply need extra care and guidance. We do this by providing grants to individual children, other children’s charities, community groups, schools and health organisations across the UK.

If you know an individual child, a community group or charity that works with children who need our help please apply; all applications are more than welcome. Grants must directly benefit the children, but they often have a life-enhancing effect on their families too.

The value of a grant is typically from £1,000 to £3,000 but we will happily consider applications for larger amounts. You can make a grant application all year-round, however our Local Executive Boards will meet to consider applications at set times of year in each area – please visit your local radio station website to find out more. Additional funding rounds may also be made available for specific campaigns – these will be detailed on our websites. All decisions made by the board are final, and all applications will receive a response once a decision has been made.

For more information on how to apply in your area visit our locations page for the contact details of your local Cash for Kids team, or choose your area from the menu on the right to visit the local website.
