If you are aware of something that the charity could fund which would benefit patients, we want to hear about it. There are a few different ways that you can access funds depending on the size and scale of your project.

Sheffield Hospital Charity Awards

The next funding round will be open 1st - 31st May 2019

Funding for small improvement projects is available via the Sheffield Hospital Charity Awards. Funding can be awarded up to a maximum of £5,000 in total. These awards have been set up to enable staff working on the front line to make changes that will improve the experience of their patients.

There are four funding rounds each year, one every quarter. Each funding round will remain open for a whole month, opening on the first day of the month and closing at 5pm on the last day of the month.

Grants under £5,000

If you would like to access funds for a project outside of the SHC Awards, then you can do so by contacting the Fund Advisor for your area.

The charity has appointed members of STH staff as Fund Advisors who are usually staff working within a service. Two Fund Advisors can approve expenditure of up to £5,000, without the need to submit an application to the charity. If it is over £5,000 then an application form needs to be filled in and returned to the charity.

Grants over £5,000

If you need a grant for over £5,000 then an application form must be completed, signed by two Fund Advisors then submitted to the Charitable Funds Management Committee via [email protected]. Please also send a copy of the application to us so we are aware of it.

Charitable funds towards study leave

Nurses can access the J Sinclair White Endowment Fund if they want to undertake a top-up degree course or attend one-off training courses, conferences or seminars. Expenses related to training may also be claimed.

All other staff will need to ensure that any training is a high priority for the area that they work in. Applications for funding should first be made to an earmarked fund if there is one available. Please discuss this with the Fund Advisors in your area. If an earmarked fund is not available then staff should apply using the General Fund.
