The James Tudor Foundation’s principal object is the relief of sickness. The Foundation operates primarily within the United Kingdom and prefers applications from organisations that have been established for at least two years and that are UK registered charities. The Foundation will also consider applications from UK registered charities for overseas projects for the relief of sickness.
The Foundation generally supports smaller to medium sized charities rather than large national organisations which enjoy widespread support.
The Foundation makes awards across six programme areas. These are:
- Palliative Care
- Medical Research
- Health Education, awards and scholarships
- The direct relief of sickness
- Overseas projects for the relief of sickness
- The fulfillment of the Foundation’s charitable objects by other means
Grants of any size can be applied for and those applying must be a UK registered charity or Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) with at least two years audited or independently certified accounts.
There is a two-stage application process. Applications must be submitted via an application form available from the foundation’s website, where comprehensive guidelines for applicants can also be found. Potential applicants must first complete an initial eligibility check.
Those applying under the medical research category or applying for funding for equipment are advised to contact the foundation prior to making an application.
Under the health education category, scholarships, prizes and grants for researchers are considered but applications must be made by the sponsoring organisation.
