Grants from the Make It Better Staff Lottery Fund

The profit from our Staff Lottery goes directly to our Make It Better Fund – the general purpose endowment fund for the UHB. Since 2011, the Committee has allocated more than £3 million to a range of worthwhile projects, including extensive medical equipment, staff room requirements, patient waiting areas, bereavement rooms, Wi-Fi services and crockery across the UHB which have made a real difference to the wellbeing of our staff and our patients.

The Trustees have approved allocation of funds to the Panel to support the following themes:

  • Patient and staff environment, including art and other aesthetic and other improvements
  • Patient dignity, respect and experience including amenity improvements and cultural awareness
  • Promotion of health and wellbeing
  • Promotion of quality and safety

Due to the contribution of the Staff Lottery to the Make It Better Fund, the Panel particularly welcome projects that promote wellbeing of staff

No bids are currently being sought for funds exceeding £10K at the panel meetings.
