Radio 4 Appeal

What is the Radio 4 Appeal?

The Radio 4 Appeal is a weekly 3 minute programme highlighting the work of a charity and appealing for donations to support its activities. The appeal aims to provide an opportunity for raising money and awareness to a variety of charities. The appeal is a fantastic way for a charity to engage with the BBC's audience.

There are 49 such appeals broadcast on Radio 4 each year, and in 2018/19 they raised £1,219,278.

Charities meeting our criteria can apply for an appeal and the applications are assessed by a panel of external assessors and the Appeals Advisory Committee. Learn if your charity is eligible to apply here.

You can listen to the Radio 4 Appeal every Sunday at 07:55 and 21:25 and again on Thursday at 15:25.
