All staff at Royal Surrey NHS Foundation Trust can apply for funding from Royal Surrey Charity for projects that enhance care for people living across South West Surrey and beyond. Applications need to be submitted to us and will go through an assessment and approval process.

What we fund

Royal Surrey Charity has a duty to both our donors and the Charity Commission – the body that regulates charities in England and Wales – to ensure every penny and pound our supporters donate is used effectively to benefit our patients. Funds can be used to support a variety of initiatives, which will generally fall under one of the following categories:

  • Medical equipment 
  • Patient experience 
  • Building, refurbishment and environment 
  • Staff education and training
  • Staff wellbeing
  • Research and development
  • Volunteer experience

Application process

Step 1: is your idea eligible?

Step 2: determine which fund to apply to

Step 3: apply to the appropriate fund

The first step is to decide whether your proposal might be considered for funding by the charity.

Next, you should find out which fund to apply to: a Designated Fund or our Greatest Need Fund.

Finally, once you know which fund to apply to, you can get started with your application.
