Trusts and Foundations

Funding from trusts and foundations provides vital for our patient support and research. If you represent a trust or foundation and would like to find out more, please contact our Fundraising Officer, Rory, on [email protected]

We work hard to understand the interests and funding priorities of each trust we work with, to identify the areas of our work which best match their objectives. Trusts can choose to fund a specific project, contribute towards our work in a particular area, or allow us to use the donation where it is most needed. 

We are committed to ensuring that trusts can see the impact of their contributions and make sure that we keep in regular contact and provide updates from our patients. We can offer tailored reports, meetings, telephone updates and patient updates to show the real difference each donation makes. We also welcome trusts along to our patient events such as our workshops so they can have a real experience of the work we do.

For details of our latest accounts please see the Charity Commission website.
