GRANT INFORMATION FOR HOSPITALS


If you are a healthcare professional working with kidney patients and you are looking for financial support, the BKPA may be able to help you with funding for innovative patient support projects, new equipment or even staff posts.

How to apply for financial aid

You can apply to the BKPA for a grant of up to £50,000 for a patient project, piece of equipment or renal unit infrastructure. Funding is available for staff posts such as renal social workers, physiotherapists, renal counsellors and youth workers up to a maximum basic salary of £50,000 per annum. It is important to remember that the BKPA will only consider grant applications if funds are not available from the hospital Trust or other relevant authority.

PLEASE NOTE:
We have recently reviewed our grants paperwork and processes to ensure that our charitable funds work as hard as possible and make the greatest impact on the quality of patients’ lives. Therefore please ensure that you read the guidelines before applying.

It is essential that you read our guidelines for further information on making an application.
