THET is a trusted manager of grant funds for both the UK government and the private sector. With a wealth of technical skills and experience-based knowledge we work to create effective grant partnerships.
We offer comprehensive grant management services for government, private sector, NGO and donor partners, aimed at delivering and supporting programmes that strengthen health systems globally.
With over 30 years of working side by side with national governments in the UK and across Africa and Asia, THET has an admirable reputation as a strategic manager of grants which bring maximum value to the lives of patients both here in the UK and abroad.
To date we have managed over 300 grants through partnerships with the Department for International Development, the Department of Health and Social Care, and Johnson & Johnson, with grant values of between £3,000 and £1.5m.

The UK Partnerships for Health Systems (UKPHS) Programme aims to support low- and lower-middle-income countries (LMICs) build stronger, more resilient health systems and make progress towards universal health coverage through improved health service performance for poor and vulnerable populations.
Through the Health Worker Action Fund (HWAF), THET is supporting established Health Partnerships to protect the physical and mental health of LMIC health workers who are engaged or preparing to be engaged in the frontline treatment of COVID-19.
By doing this, health workers are also better positioned to provide safe and effective care to patients.
THET is currently working with Johnson & Johnson to support health partnerships to deliver health worker training programmes in low and middle income countries with a particular focus on essential surgery and anaesthesia for mothers and children.
THET has previously worked with Johnson & Johnson to manage the Strengthening Surgical Capacity programme. Projects under this scheme focused on reducing morbidity and mortality from conditions requiring surgical intervention and/or enhancing patient safety as a result of improved anaesthetic care. Under this scheme 1,390 health professionals have been trained helping to improve care to thousands of patients.
THET is currently managing two grants on behalf of the Burdett Trust of Nursing, an independent charitable trust named after Sir Henry Burdett KCB, the founder of the Royal National Pension Fund for Nurses (RNPFN).
The Burdett Trust for Nursing was established in 2002 with the aim of making charitable grants to support the nursing contribution to healthcare. The Trust makes grants in support of nurse-led projects, using its funds to empower nurses and make significant improvements to the patient care environment, currently focusing on three main pillars: Building nursing research capacity and capabilities, Supporting nurses in their professional development, Supporting local nurse-led initiatives.
Since 2018, THET has been strengthening the capacity of the national health workforce and institutions in four Commonwealth countries to address antimicrobial resistance challenges. With support from the Commonwealth Pharmacists Association, projects under this scheme aim to improve antimicrobial stewardship across health institutions in sub-Saharan Africa. The scheme is funded by the the Department of Health and Social Care through the Fleming Fund.
The grant management piece is one of the attractions of THET because you have the skills and competencies to make it happen. It’s a fantastic partnership and certainly something that we could not have done alone.
