Call for ‘Curiosity’ participation

Wellcome and BBC Children in Need are collaborating on Curiosity – a programme that uses science activities to make a positive difference in the lives of children and young people affected by disadvantage.

Curiosity funding is intended for youth organisations in the UK whose main remit is supporting children and young people affected by disadvantage. The funding is disbursed by BBC Children in Need and applying organisations must meet their eligibility criteria.

List members might be interested in the opportunity to partner with youth organisations to help shape or support the science content that they deliver. Based on the 32 projects that we’ve already funded, partnerships between youth organisations and informal science learning providers gave the latter valuable insights into good practice when engaging this important audience.

If you’re interested in finding a potential partner, there are two options at the moment:

  1. Attend one of the events listed on the web page.
  2. Join our Facebook group where you can connected with others.

If you’d like to find out more, please read the web pages linked to above and if you have any further queries, do get in touch with me directly.
