How Trusts and Foundation can support us

Trusts and foundations can contribute to key aspects of St Luke’s care through grants to support:
  • Hospice revenue/core costs
  • Service development projects
  • Capital projects

Hospice core costs (unrestricted funding)

Grants are always needed to help us meet the annual costs involved in running the Hospice and in organising and delivering the services that we provide free of charge for our local community through our In-patient Unit, Woodgrange Centre and our Patient and Family Support Service. Unrestricted grants offer St Luke’s the highest flexibility to target resources where they are most needed.

Service developments

Grant funding makes a significant contribution to the income needed to help us launch or expand innovative services that support the goals of our strategic plan. These include:

  • Development of our Single Point of Access Service – Caring for Patients and Families who experience a crisis at Home
  • Expansion of our Care Home Facilitation Project – to support staff in  local Care and Nursing Homes to adopt a greater Palliative Care approach.
  • Developing activities in Woodgrange Centre (eg. Complementary and Physiotherapy sessions, information, activity and social activities) – enhancing the well being of patients and their carers
  • Expansion of activities of the Patient and Family Support Team – to include development of bereavement support groups for children and young people

Capital Projects

Capital Projects whether major extension or small refurbishment and reconfiguration projects  provide invaluable benefits for our patients, and have been generously supported by trusts and foundations over the years.

Some recent examples of the support we have received from Charitable Trusts and Foundations include funding:

  • Development our Single Point of Access and Hospice at Home services (Albert Hunt Trust, Childwick Trust,  and Harrow Council Grants Programme)
  • Complementary and Physiotherapy sessions delivered in the Hospice and in patients own homes  (Paul Daisley Trust)
  • Activity and information sessions in our Woodgrange Centre which enable patients and carers to live well and reduce their social isolation (The February Foundation, Mason Le Page, D’Oyly Carte Trust)
  • Community Support Volunteering programme (City Bridge Trust and Big Lottery Fund)
  • The redesign of one of our In Patient rooms to be suitable for use for patients with Dementia (Rank Foundation)
  • Education and training session to support and empower healthcare professionals
  • Medical equipment and furniture used across the hospice.

Demonstrating Impact

We provide funders with regular feedback on the impact that a grant has made to our patients and their carers and have an extensive monitoring systems that can provide detailed, up-to-date information on services funded by trusts and foundation. Our reports can include statistics, case studies, patient feedback, photographs as well as financial accounts and publicity as requested.
