Grants under this scheme are aimed at assisting development initiatives which reflect national policy at each of the three levels of palliative care.
This year 70% of the grant will be specifically targeted towards developments addressing dementia and end-stage kidney disease.
The scheme is open to clinicians, other professionals and/or managers in hospice/palliative care in Ireland. While it is also open to applicants from outside the field of specialist palliative care, a link to a palliative care service provider must be demonstrated.
Applications must demonstrate rigour and sound evaluation, and applicants are reminded that the emphasis must be clearly on the development of services.
Applications will not be accepted for research or capital developments.
The deadline for applications is 5pm on 14 February 2014.
The Irish Hospice Foundation runs a number of grant programmes. Details of all are available on the Foundation’s website.
