BBC Children in Need recruiting for new members to join the Welsh committee that recommends main grants
Date published: 19/02/2018
Last year over £3 million was distributed to projects throughout Wales to make a difference to the lives of disadvantaged children and young people.
BBC Children In Need is keen to expand representation from North, Mid, and West Wales (and are willing to interview in these areas too). They are also looking for Welsh speakers and representatives from minority communities.
The Committee member role:
Each Advisory Committee member is part of a small team, who collectively bring a range of skills, knowledge and experience including: working with children and young people; the voluntary sector; disability; social services; equal opportunities; business planning and finance; the rights of the child and the Children’s Act.
Advisory Committees advise the Trustees of BBC Children in Need on grant awards. Committee members are highly valued, help to maintain the integrity of the Charity and help to achieve a balanced portfolio of grants, based on the Charity’s policies, guidelines and criteria.
An Advisory Committee Member must be able to work as part of a team, communicate effectively and evaluate the merits of a grant application in an objective manner. Applications are first assessed by a team of assessors, before being forwarded to a Committee member whose role it is to recommend whether a grant should be awarded, and to then take the lead on discussing those applications during the allocation meeting. The Trustees of the Charity make the final decisions on applications.
