The Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust is accepting applications for funding from hospices that are UK registered charities and members of either Hospice UK or Together for Short Lives.
In 2021, the Trust is accelerating its annual Hospice Fund programme, in recognition of the additional pressures many hospices are experiencing due to COVID-19 and the associated restrictions on normal activities. It has simplified the application process and amended its normal eligibility criteria.
Applications will only be accepted from hospices that are charities registered in the UK that are members either of Hospice UK or Together for Short Lives.
In order to focus the available funding on areas of greatest need, the Trust will only make awards to hospices whose current level of free reserves is equivalent to 12 months or less of their operating costs.
One-off grants of up to £5,000 to support hospices’ core costs.
The deadline for applications is midnight on 3 October 2021.
