We understand that sometimes the smallest changes can make the biggest difference to a patient's time in hospital, be it a more relaxing waiting area, better equipment, activities to improve wellbeing or better access to information. The Small Grants Fund is looking for bright ideas to support staff in improving the patient experience across the Trust's five hospitals.
Members of Trust staff can apply for projects to improve patient experience in their ward, department or across the Trust, and also towards staff amenities where appropriate.
In order to make our support go further we are encouraging applications of up to £5,000 per project to ensure we can help as many teams and departments as possible over the coming year. If you have a project that you believe will make a significant improvement to patient care or service delivery that exceeds the £5,000 cap, and you are not able to access support via a Special Purpose Fund, please contact the Grants Team to discuss this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications must be submitted via our online grants management system: Flexigrant. We do not accept hard copy applications. Please click here to access the online application form.
Applications are accepted year-round, and money is ring-fenced on a quarterly basis so there is no advantage to apply early in the year.
For any additional information or guidance please contact the Charity Grants Team email@example.com or call 0203 312 2060.
