make it happen!

Apply for a grant.

To apply for a grant from Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity, staff at the hospital or other agencies should complete an application form.

All applications must be approved by NHS Lothian in line with their priorities and assessed for the cost of any future revenues.

In light of the current situation, ECHC is prioritising applications for services helping children and families through the challenges arising from Covid-19.

Please note - we are currently redeveloping our Training & Research grant application. If you would like to apply for a Training & Research grant, please use the Small Grants Application.

Please get in touch to discuss your project before making an application by contacting or calling 0131 668 4949. 

We look forward to hearing from you. 

We have three grant applications programmes:

  • Small Grants Fund (applications under £5k)
  • Large Grants Fund (applications over £5k)
  • Training and Research Fund

Each fund has associated application forms, guidance notes and terms and conditions. 

You are strongly encouraged to read these before you apply. You are also advised to contact ECHC prior to submitting your application
