The Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust has announced that it 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.
For 2020, the Trust has simplified the application process and amended its normal eligibility criteria. The available funding will be used to provide one-off grants of up to £5,000 to support hospices’ core costs.
Applications will only be accepted from hospices that are charities registered in the UK, and are members of either Hospice UK or Together for Short Lives. Applications will not be accepted from faith-based charities, charities operating outside the UK or for multi-year funding.
The closing date for applications is midnight on the 10th May 2020.
