Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust (ACT) is always on the lookout for new projects to support that benefit patients and help staff.  We are currently inviting applications for research projects and projects that support patients or benefit staff.

Projects for patient and staff benefit (Professional Advisory Committee—up to £35k)

  • Apply by 24 August for consideration at the September meeting
  • Apply by 21 September for consideration at the October meeting

Research projects (Research Advisory Committee)

  • Apply by 18 September for consideration at the October meeting

More information and application forms for the Professional Advisory Committee and Research Advisory Committee grants can be found here, where you can also find out more about the sort of projects we support.

Both committees are made up of a variety of CUH colleagues who work with ACT to make recommendations to ACT trustees for funding. You will usually receive a decision on your application within four weeks of the application deadline, or sooner.

There are several ways to access ACT funding. If you are not sure whether a PAC or RAC grant is the right option for you, please contact us at
