Trusts and Foundations

Grants from charitable trusts and foundations help fund a myriad of services and projects at Dorothy House, making a lasting difference to patients, families and carers in our community.

Each year we are fortunate, and deeply grateful, to receive financial grants from a wide variety of charitable trusts and foundations.

From small, local trusts to large, national foundations, every penny granted helps to fund our palliative and end of life care services.

This funding supports our ongoing care and vital medical equipment, as well as giving us the opportunity to expand services and implement new projects – all with the aim of ensuring everyone in our community has access to outstanding care when they need it the most.

How we support Trusts

We are highly experienced in managing grants and funded projects, and take pride in forming meaningful relationships with our funders.

We provide regular updates to all funders on the use and impact of their grants, as well as detailed final reports at the end of the funding period.

Funders, or prospective funders, are more than welcome to visit us at the Hospice.

Key documents

We are very happy to provide funders with copies of our Annual Reports, Annual Accounts, CQC Reports, and Quality Reports.
