The True Colours Trust’s Small Grants Programme supports palliative care providers across Africa.

Grants are awarded to projects which directly improve the lives of patients with palliative care needs. Most grants are awarded to small, locally-based organisations which are improving the standard of palliative care in their communities. The scheme was established in 2009 and is administered by the African Palliative Care Association.

The Small Grants Programme celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2019.

We invited all past grant recipients to enter a competition by submitting short films showcasing their work.

The True Colours Trust is a charity based in the UK. The Trust is passionate about promoting and developing palliative care for adults and children in Africa, including improving access to appropriate pain relief.

The African Palliative Care Association is a pan-African organisation ensuring that palliative care is widely understood, integrated into health systems at all levels and underpinned by evidence in order to reduce pain and suffering across Africa.
