Core Funding for Local Charities Providing Hospice Care in the UK

The Albert Hunt Trust announced last year that it plans to spend its entire resource by January 2029, its 50th anniversary. It is currently working on the final grant making strategy which will be announced at ‘the earliest opportunity to ensure past, present and potential future beneficiaries understand the funding opportunities available’. The Trust supports local charities throughout the UK who are providing hospice care, support for the homeless and those promoting health and wellbeing.

Currently, the Trust is giving priority to local charities providing hospice care. And to support this priority, the Trust has increased the amount of its core funding for hospice care:

  • Typical grant sizes now range from £20,000 to £40,000 (an increase from the previous range of £10,000 to £20,000).

The grants can be used for a range of purposes and could include:

  • Grants for core funding to include staff costs.
  • Ongoing running costs for specific projects

The type, size and time period of the award is decided on the basis of the perceived ‘difference’ that the Trust’s support will make to the organisation, to the project and to the targeted beneficiaries.

Applications will be considered from UK registered charities based in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Please note the Trust is currently closed to capital funding applications, and it does not accept applications from CICs or charities working overseas.

Applications are reviewed on a rolling monthly basis subject to the trustees availability. The deadline for submissions is the last working day of each month. If successful, an award is made around six weeks after the submission deadline.

Applications can be made at any time.
