If there is not a relevant Designated Fund, you should consider applying to our Greatest Need Fund, which covers all areas of the Trust. It is managed by the charity and is open for applications annually. Once a year, we will confirm the amount of funding available and invite applications from across the Trust within the first few months of each financial year.

Any member of staff at Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust can apply to the Greatest Need Fund. Before applying, please make sure you have consulted with an appropriate senior member of your team to ensure your idea is suitable and supports the departments’ plans.
