We want to ensure that King’s remains:

  • a centre of excellence for patients across the UK and beyond who require specialist care.
  • a provider of first-class treatment for victims of major trauma.
  • a world-class research and teaching facility.

We see ourself as a catalyst for innovation and excellence. We raise funds and give grants that enhance patient services, research and the working environment for staff.


The Charity has three priorities for grant making:

  • Further developing and delivering a strategic grants programme that delivers positive outcomes and impact for patients, service users and their families.
  • Ensuring key services/specialities use and develop their charitable funds to support innovation and improvement in clinical services across the hospitals.
  • Developing and delivering a Small Grants Programme for projects under £25,000.

Our grant-making strategy is focused on improving patient care at the hospitals through:

  • Supporting major transformation projects.
  • Enhancing equipment and facilities.
  • Supporting and inspiring clinical research.
  • Improving patient experience and welfare.
  • Supporting staff skills, health and welfare.
