At Sapphire Medical Foundation we aim to support patients with fairness and compassion. We provide grants which provide financial support to cover the costs of a prescription for medical cannabis for one year of therapy.
We recognise that the financial costs of cannabis based medicines restrict access to potentially life-changing medications. For those patients in most need this can mean making difficult decisions between their health and other financial and social responsibilities.
In addition to the financial support provided we work with grant recipients to help reduce the reliance on charitable support to continue a prescription for a cannabis-based medicinal product. This benefits grant recipients directly and increases the number of people we can help.

Grant Making Principles
The foundation exists to relieve hardship and distress caused by sickness, infirmity, disability or any medical condition that may be alleviated by cannabis-based medicinal products by providing financial assistance for the costs of medications. To ensure that the grants are appropriately awarded to the patients for whom it would be most beneficial all applications are means-tested.
