Talk to us!
We know it isn’t always easy to know how to apply for funding and what to do. Sometimes it’s helpful just to talk to someone. On 17 December and 17 January we’re going to be offering drop-in Funding and Fundraising Clinics in the main hospital reception. Running between 11:00 and 14:00, these clinics offer an ideal opportunity to talk to us about specific things, be it funding-related or about fundraising. Just drop in. No appointment necessary!

Another date for the diary is our next Fund Advisors’ Forum on Wednesday 22 January, 13:00 to 14:30.  These sessions are a good opportunity for us to get together and talk about what’s going well, what’s not going so well and how we can improve. We will use the next meeting to discuss proposed improvements, including to our grants programme, how we manage funds and the way we evaluate and monitor projects. We’d love to get your input and for you to be involved in the discussion.

Please let us know if you can join us by sending an email to
