Funding for Change – Transformation at BBC Children in Need


A session to inform the audience about the major transformation in funding, we are making at BBC Children in Need through our new Grantmaking Strategy. We will discuss the rationale for these changes and the principles we will start to embed and how this affects the charity sector and those who may wish to apply for our funding. The session will be presented by Fozia Irfan OBE, who has led the BBC Children in Need team, through the process of a new strategy and grantmaking process and is known for advocating for more equitable funding practices.

Key learnings from this session:

  • We will talk about our move to funding core costs and the importance of this for the sector
  • We will discuss our aim to provide a more streamlined and quicker application process for our funding.


Speakers are added to our events as we receive their details and are updated continuously. These events achieve the goals set out in our EDI commitment.
