Application deadline: 23 March 2021 for Large Grant applications | 20 April 2021 for Standard Grant applications.


The Hospital Saturday Fund is a registered charity which has been operating since it was founded in 1873.

It offers grant funding to registered health charities such as hospitals, hospices and medical organisations for medical projects, care, research or support of medical training taking place in the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland.

One-off grants are available to registered medically related charities in the UK and Republic of Ireland for medical capital projects, medical care or research, medical training and running costs.

There are two levels of awards:

Standard Grants of £2,000 or €3,000

Larger Grants of up to £10,000 or €13,500

Funding can assist with medical projects, capital projects, medical care or research, hospice/respite care, medical training and running costs.

Large Grants are awarded for specific projects, research or equipment rather than running costs.

Recently funded organisations include:

Leonard Cheshire Disability for Eyegaze technology.

Lullaby Trust, in the West Midlands, so that it can continue to provide expert advice on safer sleep for babies, supports bereaved families and raises awareness of Sudden Infant Death.

Cotswold Care Hospice so that it can continue to provide services on their Day Hospice programme for patients in Gloucestershire.

Treloar’s, a charity which provides education, care, therapy, medical support and independence training for children and young people with complex disabilities from across the UK, for its Assistive Technology Department.

The next deadlines are: 23 March 2021 for Large Grant applications and 20 April 2021 for Standard Grant applications.
