Enabling Choice (UK)
Up to £30,000 for hospices. Deadline 2nd August 2013
Help the Hospices has announced that grants are available to full member hospices to fund new developments in care that will enable more people to be discharged from hospital to their preferred place of care, whether this be at home or in a hospice.
Funded by the St. James's Place Foundation, funding can be used to implement work that either addresses the findings from a feasibility study/scoping exercise or supports new developments that demonstrate a clear evidence of need. The total funding available is £300,000. Examples of the type of projects and services which could be funded:
- Building a strong volunteer base able to respond flexibly to changing needs
- Delivering education and training to care staff
- Providing opportunities for hospice staff to develop their skills
