Funding is available to support innovative community arts and culture projects across the UK which open up conversations about dying, death and grief in new and creative ways. Hospice UK’s Dying Matters Community Grants Programme will award grants of between £5,000 and £8,000 to hospices for community-led projects that support hard to reach groups including ethnic minorities, homeless people, prisoners, people with learning disabilities, LGBT+ people, those living in remote and rural areas, and deprived people. Previously funded projects have included a video game that supports young people to think about death and grief, theatre productions, a community mural, comedy nights, and workshops and courses. The deadline for applications is 5pm on the 24th November 2023.
