Applications considered for funding

Funding will normally be considered for capital and revenue costs for both specific projects and for general running/core costs.

Grants are awarded for amounts from £250 to a maximum of £10,000. The awarding of grants will depend on a number of factors including purpose, total funding requirement and potential sources of other funds including, in some cases, matched-funding.

Usually, one-off grants are awarded but, in exceptional circumstances, a new project may be funded over two or three years, subject to satisfactory reports on progress.

The following are examples of areas of work which fall within the Appeal's grant policy:

  • Capital building/renovation/refurbishment works for residential, nursing, respite care and schools
  • Play schemes and play therapy schemes
  • Day and social activity centres including building costs and running costs
  • Support for families, including respite schemes
  • Independent living schemes
  • Support in the community schemes
  • Hospices
  • Minibuses
  • Advocacy projects
  • Research (cancer or children related illness)
