Supporting Hospices

The Foundation is proud to support hospices in the United Kingdom. However, we do not currently invite applications from individual hospices. Instead we will be working with Hospice UK, the umbrella organisation supporting independent hospices in the UK, who will distributes funds to hospices on our behalf.
