Peter Sowerby Foundation
The Peter Sowerby Foundation was established in 2011 to direct the personal wealth of Dr Peter Sowerby as grants to organisations that meet the charitable objectives of Dr Peter Sowerby and his late wife, Ann.
The Peter Sowerby Foundation has three areas of interest to award grants:
Medical research and healthcare provision
Community and environment
In 2019, the Peter Sowerby Foundation is issuing an open call to source a suitable project for up to £2 million of funding as part of its Health Breakthrough funding strand.
This strand prioritises projects in the following categories:
Primary medical care and research into technologies that improve the delivery of primary care.
Research undertaken by GPs.
Innovation and technology to improve primary care, particularly in rural communities.
Terminal care and support for those suffering terminal illnesses and research into improving delivery of care.
The Foundation is seeking projects with the following characteristics and potential:
Likely to be at an early - if not preliminary - stage of development
Potentially high risk
Complex and/or technical
Run by high calibre professionals with compelling track records in this or related fields
Well supervised and resourced projects (potentially through additional input by the Foundation)
High impact, transformative in improving the quality of healthcare if proven and scaled.
The Foundation is aiming to make one major grant of up to £2 million in its first Open Call.
Registered charities or CICs or registered health and social care providers based in the UK can apply.
The funding will cover capital and revenue costs specifically related to the project.
The deadline for applications is 31 March 2019 (5pm).
The guidelines and application form are on the Peter Sowerby Foundation website.
There is a two-stage application process.
The first stage is to submit a short expression of interest (maximum two sides of A4 and one additional side of A4 to outline the budget). This should be sent to [email protected] no later than 5pm on the 31 March 2019.
Successful applicants will be contacted by 30 June 2019 and will be invited to submit a more detailed application, refining the proposal and responding to queries. No more than three organisations will be invited to submit a second stage application. Trustees reserve the right to invite potential applicants to formally present proposals and/or visit the organisations invited to proceed to Stage 2.
The Foundation expects final funding announcements to be made no later than 30 November 2019.
