Duchy Health Charity

Cornwall’s leading grant giving health charity for the promotion of health and wellbeing
and the prevention of sickness in Cornwall and The Isles of Scilly

Founders of healthcare and wellbeing related initiatives
can apply for grants to help reach their objectives
Posted on 30 March 2020

At this very difficult time when your own charity is finding it hard to keep services running and funding from public support has all but disappeared we are able to give you an immediate financial help if you qualify for access to our funds and we have arranged how to speed up the grant application process for your emergency requests.

The following criteria will be applicable to judge applications, which can be requested by email.

  • Maximum we can give is a £10,000 grant
  • Local Cornish charities only (not national charities operating in Cornwall)
  • No significant sustainability concerns but we do still need to see your last set of accounts
  • You need to demonstrate how positive change can be made in health and social care in relation to Covid-19


You would not need to submit an application online, merely say briefly how the funds would be used, and the related outcomes.


A small dedicated group of our grant committee members will consider the applications on a weekly basis and following agreement we can make grant payments online to your Charity.

Business for us is ‘as usual’ so please continue to request grants from us via the normal application process as well. The dates we publish for Grant Committee meetings are there for you to see and we will be making decisions in the usual way (except they will be via on-line conferencing).

We are here to help the health and wellbeing of all in Cornwall and our Patron HRH The Prince of Wales is closely  following our work – please see his message to us on our News page entitled ‘From Clarence House…’
