Learning and Development Grants for Macmillan Professionals

NEW - Please read before continuing 

Grants programme discontinued for 2021

Due to the impact of Covid-19, Macmillan has made the difficult decision to suspend the grant programme for the whole of 2021.  

This means that any applications had to be submitted by the end of the day on 15/12/20 in order to be assessed before the end of the year; this will be the last round available.

Any applications applied for after the last round will be declined and a note provided. 

If your application is approved, your course will be funded in the usual way, so please be assured that invoices submitted within the 3 months of the end date of the activity will be paid. Your approval email confirms the information needed to ensure invoices are paid swiftly.

Existing Applications

Where you have an application that is already approved, please check with the provider that it is still happening.  If it is, and you are able to attend, please do so if you wish (you must still be in a Macmillan Professionals role).  

If it's being cancelled or postponed and/or you are not able to attend, please cancel your place and let us know so we can cancel your grant application.  You should email educationgrants@macmillan.org.uk with you grants reference number.

Likewise if your grant has been approved and the dates of the activity change as a result of Covid-19 you must inform us prior to the date change as retrospective changes cannot be made. Decisions may be made on a case by case basis.

It is your reponsibility to advise if if the grant is no longer required.. Refunds should be sought from providers where you cannot now attend. 

Please email educationgrants@macmillan.org.uk if you have other queries and they will be responded to as quickly as possible. 


Please note that although the portal still exists on our page, it is currently suspended.
