Trusts and grants

Grants and donations from local, regional and national charitable trusts, foundations, settlements and grant making bodies enable us to provide sustainable funding for our three hospices. In addition to core funding, we have an exciting range of funding opportunities for capital items, development work, and one-off projects.  Whether general or restricted, your grant or donation can make a tangible difference to the services and facilities we provide, and ultimately to the children and families we support. 

Whether you are an existing supporter or new to us, we would be delighted to welcome you to tour one of our hospices in Mid Cornwall, North Devon and North Somerset/Bristol. A visit will provide a real insight into our work and how your funding could help raise a smile or create a precious memory.

Children’s Hospice South West prides itself on developing strong relationships with our supporters. We will ensure you stay informed of our work and where desired will provide high quality reports as to the impact your funds make - helping you to fulfil your aims and objectives.

Catherine said: “We would like to send a huge thank to everyone at the MDRT Foundation for their wonderful support which will help to raise smiles and create precious memories for children and their families at Charlton Farm.

Their fantastic donation will provide play and activities for our life-limited children from baking up treats in the kitchen to getting messy with glitter and glue in our messy play room, along with a range of wonderful trips out to local attractions, parks and gardens – making the children feel like a million dollars.”
