Hospice UK Rank Foundation Awards 2020

| Return|

Hospice UK supports hospices in the UK in their vital work on the frontline of caring for people facing the end of life and caring for their families. 

The charity is offering support for projects that improve the physical environment within which hospices deliver care. The programme is primarily to support capital costs but revenue costs that help deliver the capital activity can be included in the project costs – however revenue costs must not be the primary expense.

It is important that the project should demonstrate a direct impact to patients and their families.

In 2020 the theme is Enhancing Wellbeing.

Adult hospices based in the UK that are full members of Hospice UK are eligible under this scheme.

Total available funding for the current round is £100,000 and grants of up to £20,000 are available.

The deadline for applications is 23 March 2020.

How To Apply

The deadline for applications is 23 March 2020.

Applicants must register on the online application portal to submit an online application form.
