Types of Funds

University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity manages the charitable funds that support University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust and Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust.  

Each charitable fund has at least two fund advisers who suggest, by making a grant application, how the donations can be spent to have the best benefit on the greatest number of patients. 

There are two categories of charitable fund:

Care Funds

You can apply for a grant for equipment, facilities, services (including salaries) as well as support for staff to attain new skills and knowledge  -  that have a clear and direct impact on human health. There are two schemes:

Special Purpose Funds

University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity Special Purpose Funds have specific terms so that each one can only be used for a particular ward or service of the NHS organisations we support. 

General Funds

University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity General Funds have broader terms so that they can be used across a hospital or NHS organisation. 

Research Funds

University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire Charity Research Funds support non-commercial research.You can apply for a grant for equipment, facilities, salaries or to help disseminate your findings such as the attendance of a conference.

Research Funds tend to be Special Purpose Funds (those with specific terms so that they can only be used for research into a specific speciality)  but there is one General Fund called General Research, Innovation and Development fund that has broader terms enabling grants to be made across non-commercial research projects.

There are currently no research funds to support Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership Trust.
