Hospices and palliative care services in England and Wales, that receive less than 60% of their funding from the NHS are eligible to apply for grants of between £500 and £5,000 towards the operating costs of hospice services for adults and/or children.
Individual grants are calculated on the basis of the services provided and the number of beds operated by the hospice. Grants are not given towards building costs or to hospices that are not yet operational.
Over £5,000 can be awarded to charities for a specific purpose only.
Reasons to apply for a Large Grant can include funding salary costs, specific project costs and refurbishment costs. New build or large scale capital development projects cannot be considered.
Funding may be granted for up to three years, where there is evidence of an on-going need for funding.
The team will then review your submission at a fortnightly Grants Panel Meeting and get back to you via email to confirm if you have been selected to make a formal application for a Large Grant.
Please note that only one enquiry form can be submitted by a charity, for a single project. If the enquiry application is unsuccessful, subsequent enquiry forms may then be completed.
Between £500 and £5,000 can be awarded to charities for core expenditure such as general running or overhead costs of the charity.
The next deadline for applications is 31st July 2017.
