    Palliative Care Scotland have launched a small grants scheme to support organisations to put on rememberance events in Scotland as part of this year's To Absent Friends festival. (01-07 November 2024.)

    Two types of small grants (of up to £300) are available:

    • Community grants: These are for organisations and communities that want to plan private remembrance events at which their community can come together (in person or online) to share memories, stories, and solace
    • Public grants: These are for organisations that want to organise an interactive public event such as a concert, exhibition or installation, freely open to members of the public

    The fund aims to support activities that provide opportunities for storytelling and/or remembrance of people who have died. The range of ways in which organisations can participate is wide and varied. In previous years, events have included concerts, poetry nights, craft activities, memory sharing events, storytelling suppers, exhibitions, and much more. They encourage creative and innovative ideas that feel right to local groups and communities.

    Some ideas of relevant activities are available in this Guide to Organising an Event

    Who can apply

    Any organisation with a bank account can apply for a grant. They encourage applications from charities, community groups, care homes, NHS organisations, small businesses, prisons, arts organisations, schools, education institutions, and more. 

    More information about the small grants is available here: https://www.toabsentfriends.org.uk/content/small-grants-2024/

    They are holding an informal lunchtime chat online at 1pm on 19 August 2024 for those who’d like to find out more, or chat over their ideas.  E-mail [email protected] if you’d like to attend.

    The closing date for applications is Monday 02 September 2024.
