Barts and the London Charity

An independent charity dedicated to supporting the patients treated at Barts and The London NHS Trust.

Its vision is to promote excellence in healthcare by raising, investing and granting funds for research and equipment.

The Charity supports innovative projects that would not be funded by the NHS. This year, in addition to our historical commitment, we have allocated a further £7 million to new projects. However, we receive requests for at least twice this amount, which is why we seek partnerships with external donors. All administrative costs are covered – so 100% of your donation will go straight to your chosen cause.

Over the past nine years, we have provided more than £150 million via grants and fundraising.
