General Purposes Funds

University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity  has a small number of General Funds. These  funds have a broad term that enables them to be used across a hospital, service or NHS organisation.

University Hospital General Purposes Fund

Every four months we invite applications for up to £10,000 that will fund an innovative idea that will have a positive impact upon patients in University Hospital.  Find out more.

Other general purposes funds

You can apply at  any time,  so you can make a difference – fast!  Your  first step is to  speak to the Fund Adviser  as applications must be submitted by them and endorsed by the NHS Trust authorising officer.  A grant request of £20,000 or  more must also be endorsed by the Chief Executive Officer of the NHS organisation.

Fund Advisers  for General Funds are senior staff who, as volunteers for the Charity, act as a link between the NHS team working on the ward or service and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity.  

Refer to the list on the left hand side to see a list of  charitable funds and  the fund advisers.

Reporting

Reporting on the progress of your project is crucial. As well as allowing us to see the positive changes you’ve made, it helps us in communicating the impact of the projects we fund – vital in enabling our supporters to see the difference we make to patients’ lives.
