Hospice Care Home Training Programme Opens for Applications (UK)

Hospices across the UK are invited to apply for funding to deliver courses and study days specifically focused on dementia care for people nearing the end of life.

Grants of up to £2,000 are available per course to a hospice to run a training course at free or heavily discounted cost to local care home staff to raise the level of dementia care, knowledge and skills in the hospice’s area of operation.

The funding aims to make education and training as inexpensive and widely available as possible to care home staff.

Eligible costs include:

  • teaching costs
  • travel costs
  • administrative costs
  • venue hire / training facilities
  • catering costs

The funding, which is made available through the Wolfson Foundation Hospice Care Home Training Programme, will be allocated on a first come, first served basis until the budget is fully allocated.

Applications must be received at least one month before the training takes place.
