Helping to live with and survive cancer with our awards and grants

Essentially we see two categories of awards and grants:

  • Firstly, awards to Dorset based individuals in need of some financial support.
  • Secondly, grants to Dorset based organisations to assist with finance of research work or purchase of equipment.

Awards will be granted on a regular basis and applications are invited from individuals and organisations that require assistance.
If you wish to apply for an award, and reside in the county of Dorset, and are currently undergoing treatment for any form of cancer, please fill in the application form below.  If you would prefer a hard copy, click here to download a PDF.

Prior to receiving an award you will be sent a contract letter which needs to be signed by you and your GP/ healthcare professional and returned to the DCCF.

Please note that the Foundation will not be able to provide financial support for services for which the NHS has a statutory requirement to provide.

Application form

  • To support your application please also provide, in your own words, the following information:
    • Details of your request for support
    • Approximate costs
    • Why you should be granted an award
    Many people are inspired to fundraise for DCCF because they have read about how we help people in their local newspaper. Publicising our work also enables us to reach out to other people who may need us. Would you be willing to help us by sharing your DCCF story? If yes, please tick this box. We will contact you if there is an opportunity to involve you in publicity. But rest assured we will not give your information to the media without your permission. Your story will be treated confidentially and it won’t be available for other participants to read without your agreement.
