Funding from independent grant makers such as Trusts and Foundations allows St Christopher’s to continue to innovate in the field of palliative care
At St Christopher’s we aim to provide the highest standards of care tailored to each patient, and as a charity we rely on support beyond government funding to achieve this.
The generosity of Trusts and Foundations enables us to consistently improve end of life care for people across south east London, and further afield – nationally and internationally. The grants we have received have supplied us with state of the art medical equipment and funded community projects that empower patients and carers around death, dying and loss. We have a number of Trust funded projects tackling issues like bereavement and isolation, including Coach4Care, Compassionate Neighbours and our Bereavement Help Points.
We are currently running a number of exciting projects at St Christopher’s, beyond our core work, which rely on charitable donations in order to continue. We are looking for Trusts and Foundations that we can partner with to give our projects the support they need to grow, thrive and sustainably serve our community in the long-term.
If you are aware of any Trust or Foundation (big or small) that might be willing to support our services then please do not hesitate to contact us. Here are some of the key areas that our projects focus on:
- Palliative care
- Communities and community action
- Elderly people
- Children and young adults
- International education and healthcare
- Social work and welfare
- Mental health support
- Arts and music therapy
- Spiritual care
- Volunteer services
- Capital funding.
