Apply For Funding

Due to the developing COVID-19 situation, we are suspending awarding any large research or treatment and care grants for the 2020/21 financial year. We will still be awarding small project grants (up to £1,500), however these will strongly prioritise applications related to coping with COVID-19. If you would like to discuss applying for a small grant please contact us FAO Grant Giving at  [email protected] or 0114 553 3330.


Existing grants will not be affected by this suspension and we will work with grant holders to accommodate disruptions caused to projects by COVID-19. If you would like to discuss this please contact Emma Clarke as above.




There are more people in the UK living with cancer now than at any time in our history – with one in two people now likely to be diagnosed with cancer.


Therefore the need to provide high quality cancer care, research and treatment is increasing. On 1st May 2018 the Weston Park Cancer Charity and the Cancer Support Centre merged to create a stronger organisation which can respond to this need. We want to directly help 47,000 patients and carers over the next five years.


Applications to the research, care and treatment committees are currently CLOSED.



Our research grants invest in medical, scientific and care-related research to enable people to live longer or better lives with cancer now or in the future.


Our treatment grants invest to further improve treatment at Weston Park Cancer Centre through the funding of cutting-edge equipment and patient facilities which add value to NHS provision.


Our care grants aim to provide support and care for more people affected by cancer. Over the next five years, we aim to respond to a minimum of 100,000 requests for support.
