BBC Children in Need has announced that it is moving from London to MediaCityUK next year.
This will see the arrival of 50 members of staff and the decision has been made to accommodate Children in Need’s “ambitious growth plans” and as part of a wider strategy to “rationalise” the BBC’s property portfolio in and thereby reducing overheads.
“This is an important day for BBC Children in Need. Having the charity at the heart of Media City is an opportunity to reach new audiences and increase our impact on the lives of children who really need our help,” said David Ramsden, CEO, Children in Need.
The majority of Children in Need will operate from MediaCityUK, but it will continue to have a presence in central London and regional offices.
