Sir Jules Thorn Charitable Trust 

Grants available: £150,000 to £500,000
Deadline to apply: 29 February 2024
Who is the funding for? This fund is open to applications from registered and exempt charities in the UK as well as NHS organisations. The fund supports the development of new models of care and the integration of health and care services. 
Applications can address care for any area of physical or mental health or disability but must provide evidence that the new model will deliver positive real-world outcomes for beneficiaries. 
The trust will only support projects which have the potential to deliver benefits beyond a single setting. Applications will therefore need to show that the model is scalable or could be replicated by other organisations, and how it would be sustained. Organisations interested in applying to the fund will need to book a call with the trust’s team to ensure their charity or project meets its criteria. Calls should be booked using the link on the trust’s website.  
When will you hear back? 
Shortlisting will be completed in May, with final decisions made in November 2024.
