Proposals should aim to develop non-clinical skills of frontline staff to improve patient care and treatment. 

Leeds Hospitals Charity is making available £25,000 for Education Grants in Q1 of 2024/25. The maximum grant available is £2,000 and we’re looking for a range of projects and initiatives that demonstrate a creative and innovative approach to education and training with the opportunity to support a team or group of staff rather than an individual to develop non-clinical skills for staff working in clinical settings.

We’re particularly interested in applications that:

  • Enable the development of non-clinical skills in a clinical setting.
  • Demonstrate the link to patient treatment and care.
  • Evidence the opportunity for the funding to deliver impact to a greater number of staff (rather than being limited to one individual).

We invite you to register for our upcoming information webinar via MS Teams on Thursday 25 April 2024 where there will be an opportunity to ask questions.
