We are currently reviewing the process used for the hospice service grants in 2006-07 and are collecting information on the hospice service schemes supported this year. We will be discussing with the Association of Children’s Hospices and other key stakeholders any revisions necessary to the process for 2007-08 and 2008-09. We will be issuing further information for applicant organisations once this has been completed.
