BBC Children in Need to match Stormzy’s £10m pledge for racial equality

From Civil Society 

Last month, following the death of George Floyd and the subsequent Black Lives Matter protests around the world, the rapper pledged to donate £10m in 10 years to “organisations, charities and movements that are committed to fighting racial inequality, justice reform and black empowerment within the UK”.

Children in Need will commit the same amount to a new programme to support young black people in the UK.  The funds will go towards a range of projects, including “to support young social entrepreneurs in making a difference in their local communities, to develop young leaders and youth leadership, to enable access to education and learning, and to develop young people’s skills and confidence for work”.

Young black people will be involved in the creation and delivery of the programme, the charity said, including reviewing funding applications.
