The Wallace & Gromit Children’s Charity aims to fund projects which are not funded directly by the National Health Service. It provides grants of between £100 and £10,000 for charitable projects which enrich and improve the quality of life of sick children in hospitals or hospices in any area in the UK.
Preference is given to projects conceived by and in children’s hospitals and hospices.
The Foundation is looking to support the following types of projects:
- Arts, music, play and leisure programmes.
- Facilities to support families of children treated in hospitals or hospices.
- Welcoming and accessible environments.
- Care and facilities in hospices.
- Promoting education and information programmes.
- Supporting children with physical and emotional difficulties.
- Medical equipment (when it can be shown that funding is not available from statutory sources).
Preference will be given to children’s hospitals and hospices in regional centres around the UK which:
- Provide a regional geographic healthcare service to a wide range of children in a hospital/hospice.
- Will not discriminate on the grounds of wealth, race, sexuality, religion or disability.
- Agree to promote the work of the Foundation in their area.
It should be noted that the Charity has a long-standing relationship with a number of organisations and to whom they are sympathetic and to whom priority consideration may be given.
The deadline for applications is 18 October 2019.
