The Hospital of God Grants Programme
November 2020 Update
In March due to the Coronavirus Pandemic, the trustees took the decision to suspend the normal grants application process and focus on providing help where possible to our local community. During this period we have been able to provide small grants to a large number of organisations.
From January 2021 we will be restarting our normal grants application procedure. From 2021 grant applications will be considered twice a year in February and September.
Please note any organisation who have received an emergency grant will still be eligible to apply for further funding in 2021.
The trustees look forward to receiving your applications.
PLEASE keep checking our website for any further updates.
Thank you for visiting our website and taking an interest in applying for a grant. We have attached some information below that will help you to make your application.
To make a grant application, please use our new online portal. This can be accessed using the pink button below that says grants, or the button saying grants in the top right hand corner of our homepage:
Applying for a Grant:
