A community, not just a charity
The Friends of UCLH have been supporting UCLH for many years and, before that, supported the hospitals which came together to form UCLH.
We fund ‘extras’ – things that the NHS doesn’t provide or can’t afford. Extras can be for patients or staff or both. We have investments which give us a small income. We fundraise as well because there are more demands on us than our income will cover. You can find our accounts on the Charity Commission website.
We’ve been especially active in 2020:
- In April-June, the Friends approved 27 grants worth £38k, most of them to support staff during the COVID-19 crisis.
- The Friends of UCLH and the UCLH Charity are each giving £30k this year to support UCLH’s arts and heritage work
- The Exemplar Ward programme will again receive a Friends grant – this year £9k
- The urology outpatient department at Westmoreland Street has been given £4,500 for new waiting area chairs
Whether you’ve been treated at UCLH yourself or just know someone who’s been cared for here, think about joining the Friends. A donation can be any size, one-off or regular. Whatever you like - the ‘donate online’ button lets you choose. Or you could simply send a cheque to our office - Friends of UCLH, c/o UCLH, 235 Euston Road, London NW1 2BU – ideally with a Gift Aid declaration as well.
The donate online button also asks you for contact details so that we can keep you in touch with what we’re doing with your donations. We’ll send you a quarterly newsletter and an invitation to our AGM to hear about our plans.
