Cash for Kids is a charity which raises funds (through various different initiatives, including via online donations – see above) to support children aged 0-18 (in the local area of each Branch), who are disabled, disadvantaged or suffering from abuse or neglect. Cash for Kids ensures that money donated to a particular Branch of Cash for Kids stays within and is used to support children living in that local community.


One of the functions available on the site allows you to make an online application to receive a grant of charitable funds. To make an application, you will need to complete the online application form which is accessible through the website associated with the radio station (see above) affiliated to the local Branch from which you are making an application for charitable funds.

The online form will ask you to provide us with details of individuals and organisations which need our support. Once submitted, your application will then be accessible by Cash for Kids and by the Local Executive Board ( “LEB”) of the Branch you have applied to so that they may consider its eligibility for funding. Please note that each Branch’s LEB is made up of 7-10 members, some external members of the local community and some Bauer employees.

All applications will be discussed at an LEB allocation meeting of Cash for Kids which each Branch will hold up to three times a year, following which funding will be awarded to those applicants which are considered to be most deserving of funds. Both successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified of the LEB’s decision within seven working days of the LEB meeting.

Cash for Kids is permitted to accept applications for funding from individuals, or through registered charities, to fund the purchase of specific equipment and/or other specialist projects including individuals, schools, playgroups and community organisations provided always that the beneficiary is located and/or operating in the same Local Area as the Branch to which the money has been donated or given.

Applications will only be considered by the LEB if they are:

  • Submitted by persons over the age of 18 years old;
  • For the benefit of socially, economically, physically, mentally or emotionally disadvantaged children aged 0-18 with a focus on improving quality of life, personal development and aspirational fulfilment; and for either
    • Fixed-term project work to enrich the lives of children and governed by a specific time frame (to be no longer than six months) and the completion of agreed objectives;
    • The procurement of equipment necessary to achieve said objectives;
    • For an individual beneficiary provided the application is supported by a letter (on headed paper) from the beneficiary’s teacher, care worker, medical professional, occupational therapist or similar.

Applications will NOT be considered if they seek funds for payment of a salary, staff expense or general running costs or overheads.

Please note that:

  • The average value of a grant awarded by the LEB is approximately £3,000 – larger grants will only be considered in very limited circumstances; all applications by registered charities must include a copy of their most recent annual report and accounts;
  • Applications will not be put forward for LEB consideration until all relevant supporting documents have been received;
  • The LEB may defer an application and request additional information before making its decision in relation to an application;
  • Successful and unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email as to the LEB’s decision on the application.

Please note: before you submit your application, we’ll ask if you agree to a summary of the grant (if successful) being used on the radio, granting maps, charity and radio station websites, email newsletters and social media across our national and local networks. Organisations will be featured, but applications for individual children and families will be anonymised with all identifying details removed. We may also contact a small number of successful applicants to discuss the potential for further use of their grant information, e.g. as a more in-depth case study. If you don’t want us to use your application in any way please answer ‘No’ on the relevant question.
