Small Acorns Fund

Small Acorns Fund

This fund is open to staff at The National Hospital and The Institute of Neurology. Until recently, The National Brain Appeal has mainly supported major capital projects at Queen Square with long lead times.

The Small Acorns Fund gives front-line staff the chance to apply for funding to fast-track smaller scale projects that will have a big impact and benefit to patients. Previous successful projects have included Mindfulness Training to help staff teach their patients how to manage neuropathic pain; comfy, adaptive clothing for patients with reduced mobility; and mobile arm supports for the neuro-rehab unit to aid those affected by a stroke. These might be small changes, but the difference they can make to people’s lives are enormous.

Our aim is to raise £30,000 a year so we can respond effectively and quickly to projects ranging from £500 to £10,000 put forward by staff at The National Hospital and The Institute of Neurology.
