The Wolfson Foundation has announced that the next closing date for stage 1 applications to its Health and Disability Grants Programme is the 1st July 2019.
Through the programme, the Wolfson Foundation, makes grants of between £15,000 – £100,000 for new buildings, refurbishments and equipment for a range of organisations delivering excellent care and support.
The funding is focused on:
- Palliative Care and Hospices;
- Older People;
- Transitions and Independence.
Match funding is required for projects over £50,000. The Foundation does not provide funding for clinical care which might be considered the proper responsibility of the National Health Service (e.g. refurbishment of hospital wards or other facilities, or provision of surgical equipment).
The Foundation also encourage applications from all parts of the UK, especially regions that have few alternative sources of funding.
Those applicants successful at stage 1 will have until September 2019 to submit a stage 2 application. Funding decisions will be made in June 2019.
