The UCLH Cancer Fund’s mission is to make a difference for all people with cancer at UCLH by funding projects, medical equipment, research and education to enhance the experience for patients, visitors and staff.  

Grant Application process

The Cancer Fund board welcomes applications for items, activities or projects that help further the Fund’s purpose and objectives.  If you wish to apply for a grant, please complete this application form by the agreed date (which should be at least one week before the next Board meeting). Please complete each section.

Please complete a separate form for each grant request. Please complete the form below.

If you have any queries about the application process or would like to request the form as a word document, please email

All applicants will be sent a receipt of the application within one week and will be informed of the Board’s decision within two weeks of their meeting (the Board meets quarterly). If a decision is needed urgently, please inform us when you submit the grant request. If the grant is approved, it should be acted upon within the agreed time-frame. Should more than three months elapse between the applicant's receipt of the approval and the arrival of the goods/invoice, the grant will be considered void.

Successful applicants will be required to provide an update/brief report on the progress and impact of their project/activity/item and details on how the Fund will be acknowledged. Details will be agreed upon with the Cancer Fund on receipt of the outcome of your application.  

NB: If you are planning a project which needs substantial funding of over £5,000. Please let the Fund know at the initial planning stage, as it may be possible to fundraise specifically in support of the project.
