Hospices To Receive £40 Million To Improve Physical Environment

The Department of Health is making £40 million available in 2010-11 to fund improvements to the physical environment for adult voluntary sector hospices in England as part of the End of Life Care Strategy. The minimum grant will be £25,000 with no upper limit though large grants are likely to be the exception. At the end of the first year of the programme hospices should be able to point to tangible physical improvements in their environments and show how these contribute to improved care provision for patients, their families and carers.

Deadline for applications is Friday 8 January 2010. For more information see the link below:
