Small project grants

Small project grants up to £50,000 are for initiatives that would not otherwise be funded by the NHS and which fall into one of the following categories:

  • research
  • enhancement in service delivery
  • promotion of patient or community engagement
  • innovative training and development
How to apply

Applicants interested in a small project grant should send a brief Expression of Interest form to our Grants Team to help us consider if the proposal is something which the Charity will potentially fund. At this stage no full costing will be needed.

Please note that research funded by this scheme is usually for projects which will generate preliminary data which can then be used to support a larger application to a major funding body. 

Full application
