Local organisations and projects that support disabled children and their families have the opportunity to apply for funding through the True Colours Trust.
Grants of up to £10,000 are usually available for one-off purposes, to help smaller organisations develop and deliver programmes for children, their siblings and families. The Trustees are particularly keen to award grants for hydrotherapy pools; multi sensory rooms; mini buses; young carers projects; sibling projects; and bereavement support.
Trustees favour support for items which directly improve the patient experience and the standard of palliative care services. Priority is given to: equipment for patients; palliative care for children and young people; palliative care medicines; capital improvement costs; increasing access to palliative care in rural areas; and training courses for palliative care service providers held in Africa.
Applications can be submitted at any time.
