We are keen not to burden the organisations we support with too much paper work and ‘jumping through hoops’. On the other hand, just sending a newsletter in the hope that this will trigger a grant in return is unlikely to succeed. We want to know what you do, what you want money for, how much it’s going to cost and, when appropriate, how you’ll know that the money has made a difference.
There is no application form; just write to us with the appropriate information. The kind of detail expected from a local self help group wanting a couple of hundred pounds will be different from the information expected from a large charity wanting several thousand pounds for a new initiative. The Committee meets six times a year. From receiving an application to the applicant receiving a grant (or not) usually takes around three months. In the case of disasters and emergencies we may be able to act more quickly. We notify all applicants about the outcome of their request.
Send applications to:
Sovereign Health Care Community Programme
Royal Standard House
26 Manningham Lane
Please remember that Sovereign Health Care receives many more applications than it can fund. We often have to make difficult decisions and may have to turn down appeals for good causes, even those that fully meet our priorities.
