Project Background

The Adult and Children’s hospice located in Grimsby has served thousands of families over its 40 year history.

Held in high regard by the community of North East Lincolnshire the hospice runs in large part to the generosity of the public raising funds or shopping in the Hospice’ network of charity shops. However with rising demand and rising costs the hospice needed to develop and establish a strategic process for identifying grant and trusts funds who would support their work.

Project Solution

Working alongside the Hospice’s Deputy CEO, recent applications to funders were reviewed and a template was developed which articulated the values, aims and mission of the hospice, detailed its operations and good practice to form an organisational brief which would form the basis for future trust applications.

Priorities for funding were then identified and in partnership with front line practitioners, a variety of project outlines were developed, detailing the Need that had been identified, the activities they were undertaking to meet that need and the outcomes from the activities which met the need.

Using these project outlines 150 trust submissions were made across the following year.

Project Impact

Achieving a ‘hit rate’ of 1 in 4 the grant fundraising team at St Andrew’s Hospice were awarded a total £170,000 to purchase equipment, set up new projects and ensure the best possible care for patients in the hospice and their families.
