We aim to make a real, practical difference in everything we do and our grant programmes demonstrate that commitment with a range of funding opportunities for hospices and their staff.

We run grant programmes to support hospices and staff

From funding improvements in care to supporting professional development, our grant programmes have a lasting impact on the provision of hospice and palliative care  in the UK.

Our grant programmes are funded by the generous donations received from external sources, including trusts and foundations, and we are grateful for their support.

Open grant programmes

Details of our grant programmes, which are currently open for application. Others may be available during the course of the year, so it is worth checking our website for regular updates.

How our grants work

We receive funding for the grants we provide from other charitable trusts and foundations, so specific criteria apply each year. Each programme will have its own application form, criteria, guidelines and deadline.

The criteria for each programme are agreed by the Hospice UK Governance Committee and each respective funder, taking into account any restrictions the funders may include.

UK grants

Our member organisations and their staff can apply for grants to help them undertake specific capital projects, develop new or existing services for the people they care for and their families, and increase their expertise in the work they do.

Non member organisations offering palliative care services are also eligible to apply for grants, depending on the criteria of the grant programme.

International grants

Hospice UK has a history of running an international grants programme, however the programme is now closed and we do not expect this to re-open.
