Africa Small Grants

True Colours’ Africa Small Grants programme provides funding to support the development of palliative care across Africa. The programme is administered by the African Palliative Care Association and applications are considered twice each year.

Funding is primarily for one-off projects, in particular items which directly improve the patient experience and the standard of palliative care services delivered.
