Hospital Travel Fund

Our Hospital Travel Fund provides grants of up to £200 for patients and families affected by leukaemia to put towards hospital travel costs.

Our Hospital Travel Fund is now depleted. Applications will open in the New Year.

The fund operates on a monthly basis. There is no closing date, awards are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis until the fund is depleted each month.

What we will fund

  • Maximum award of £200.
  • Grants cannot be applied for retrospectively. This fund is available for leukaemia patients that are currently undergoing treatment, chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) patients on ‘watch and wait’, or chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) patients in the first year of treatment-free remission (TFR).
  • Grant can be used towards bus tickets, train tickets, fuel, car maintenance, parking and taxi fares.
  • One grant per family.

Eligibility Criteria

  • You must be a patient with a diagnosis of leukaemia, or a parent, sibling, child or spouse of a patient.
  • You must be seeking funding for travelling to/from hospital.
  • You must be a resident of the UK.
