Palliative Care Development in Africa: Accepting Applications for Small Grants Programme

Deadline: 1 March 2019

The Trustees of the True Colours Trust have set aside funds towards a small grants programme for hospices and palliative care providers across Africa to support the development of palliative care.

Applications and approved grants are administered by the African Palliative Care Association. Funding is primarily for one-off projects, with a duration of no more than one year.

Grant Information

The size of grants ranges from £500- £5,000.

Funding Priorities

Trustees favour support for items which directly improve the patient experience and the standard of palliative care services for people of all ages. Priority is given to the following, in no particular order:

  • Training courses for palliative care service providers held in Africa (applicants must supply a curriculum / outline of the topics covered, and supply the name of the accrediting body. Funds will be released on receiving the letter of acceptance for the training institution)
  • Equipment for patients (e.g. beds, wheelchairs). For equipment they will require at least three quotes attached to the application, with the preferred quote indicated and reasons why.
  • Projects supporting paediatric palliative care services (this could include purchasing toys, integrating paediatric services into an existing programme, developing materials for advocacy, etc.).
  • Medicines.
  • Capital improvement costs (such as refurbishing buildings to improve the patient experience, buying furniture, etc.)
  • Developing small palliative care projects (integrating palliative care components in existing health care services, adapting palliative care models, quality improvement activities e.g Palliative Care standards, developing materials, etc.) and helping health care providers to establish new palliative care projects where none currently exist.
  • Increasing access to palliative care in rural areas.

Only registered hospices and/or palliative care providers in any setting of care can apply.
