Tackle is able to offer small grants to be paid to patient support groups that are members to assist with running their organisations, raising awareness or providing support to their members. Once again this year, a total of £5,000 is available. The grants, which may be of up to £500 each, are managed by the Federation. Example cases where a small grant would be viewed favourably are equipment purchase (eg roller banners, minor computing equipment), awareness advertising, PSA testing.
Recent awards have been for a variety of projects including design of leaflets, update of a website, supply of display materials, holding awareness or PSA testing events, purchase of computer equipment and software, and general assistance with funding the costs of running support meetings.
In 2017, we will allocate grants in January, May, September and December. Applications for funds will close at the end of the preceding month.
