Trusts & Grants

These applications can be for specific services such as Day Hospice, Inpatient Care, Bereavement Counselling, or it may for a general donation to our overall costs.

Lindsey Thornhill, Nurse Practitioner

Sometimes they can be for a specific post like The Ballinger Trust who have awarded a generous grant of £50,000 to fund a Nurse Practitioner  for 2 years; Lindsey Thornhill is one of our Nurse Practitioners who helps to deliver the Day Care Service.

If we need to buy specific medical equipment then we can apply for these too. In the past we have been given grants of £6,940 to buy a specially adapted bath, which is easier for patients to use: or £3,000 to buy new mattresses for patients staying in the Inpatient Unit: or £40,245 to buy a brand new Patient Bus to bring patients to and from the Hospice; or even £10,000 towards the cost of supplying daily oxygen to help patients with their pain.

Every year we are really lucky to be supported by so many Trusts and Foundations including:
