The fund supports healthcare in Peterborough and the area covered by Peterborough and Stamford hospitals. It supports both individuals requiring medical equipment and organisations who carry out healthcare activities.
The Harry Cureton Fund exists due to the generosity of the late Harry Cureton, who for many years lived at Eye, near Peterborough and donated a large lottery win to help local people.
Applications for both capital and revenue costs for healthcare activities are invited covering:
- Preservation and promotion of good health and education about health issues;
- Provision of palliative care in relation to terminal or chronic conditions;
- Research into the causes, treatment and care for of all forms of illness (which can be undertaken anywhere in the UK);
- Relief and treatment of all forms of physical and mental illness and rehabilitation from such illness
Applications for capital or revenue costs for healthcare activities relating to the delivery of Directed Enhanced Services (DES) will not be considered.
Applications are currently being encouraged from local charitable or community organisations that are supporting the health and wellbeing of all refugees and asylum seekers in the Peterborough area.
Criteria for grant applications:
Applications are invited by medical professionals on behalf of individuals in need, or by organisations.
Deadline: 1 August
