Adult hospices that are full members of Hospice UK and are based in the UK, Isle of Man or the Channel Islands have until the 24th November 2017 to apply for funding from the Rank Foundation.
A total of £100,000 of funding is available with the maximum grant available being £20,000. The Rank Foundation like to support projects where they are the major or sole funder and this programme is to support capital projects that have a direct impact to patients in adult member hospices. In 2017 the theme for the funding is Conditions other than Cancer.
Examples of the types of items that can be funded include:
- Items to support care, such as environmental control systems, multi-sensory equipment
- Refurbishment of bedrooms
- Refurbishment of bathrooms, including provision of specialist bathing equipment or hoists
- Reconfiguration of existing space and/or new building work.
