Referrer Registration

BBC Children in Need Emergency Essentials Programme is a referrer only scheme and applications can only be made by an approved referrer.

If you work for an organisation that supports families, children and young people and are capable of assessing their needs, you can register to become a referrer before you making an application.

Your organisation should also be able to administer and supervise the grant on our behalf.


For more information, please call 01904 550011 or email

How to apply

Once your registration has been approved you will be notified via email. You can then login to access your personal referrer dashboard and make an application.

Family Fund Business Services has to work within specific criteria whilst aiming to provide a flexible grant programme to assist those most in need. Please read our guidelines before applying.
