Grants are awarded to projects which directly improve the lives of patients with palliative care needs. Most grants are awarded to small, locally-based organisations which are improving the standard of palliative care in their communities. The scheme was established in 2009 and is administered by the African Palliative Care Association.
Funding is normally awarded for one-off projects and the size of grants ranges from £500 to £5,000. Projects should be implemented within one year of the receipt of a grant.
Funds disbursed through the Small Grants Programme should be used for activities which increase access to palliative care, improve the standard of palliative care services and directly improve the patient and family experience. Priority is given to the following, in no particular order:
- Equipment for patients
- Palliative care for children and young people
- Palliative care medicines
- Capital improvement costs
- Increasing access to palliative care in rural areas
- Developing small palliative care projects
- Training courses for palliative care service providers held in Africa
They regret that they are not able to make grants towards:
- Attending conferences
- Education courses outside Africa
- General work with children and young people which does not adhere to the WHO definition of palliative care
- Per Diems or grants to individuals or governments
- Salary costs
The work of any organisation currently in receipt of funding from the True Colours Trust or which has been in receipt of funding from True Colours within the last twelve months.
