Hospice Aid UK

Hospice Aid is a unique UK based charity delivering much needed grants to UK hospices.

Hospice AID UK is committed to support all hospices who apply to us with every penny spent staying in the UK. We give support where and when it's needed.

There is no charge for hospice care and they rely heavily on public funding. We have provided support in all types of ways, whether to help buy specialist equipment, cover hospice running costs, supply emergency funding or in other areas that can be difficult to get funding for.

We are driven by our determination to increase awareness of how reliant hospices are for funding, but we couldn't do this without public support.

A donation, however large or small, would mean we could help a larger number of hospices and reach more of the people that need it. Hospice Aid UK delivers the money where it is needed, when it is needed.

Nerve Tumours UK

Nerve Tumours UK provides support and information, as well as campaigns and raises awareness on behalf of over 26,500 people in the UK who have Neurofibromatosis (NF1 and NF2) and Schwannomatosis. We’re here to improve lives for people with nerve tumours, by making sure those affected have access to the help they require.

Nerve Tumours UK provides crucial support and empowerment for those affected by nerve tumours in the UK.

Nerve tumours are not limited to one group of people. Regardless of gender, age, ethnicity, sexuality, disability or wealth – if not catered for appropriately, can cause intense grief and isolation.

Nerve tumours can be uncompromising, painful and punishing without the right support network. As long as the condition is around, we will strive to provide better and more targeted support. Our Nerve Tumours UK Helpline and support network is available to every region of the United Kingdom, and we endeavor to support those outside of the UK wherever possible.

Royal College of Surgeons of England

Register Charity No. 212808

With 4.2 million surgical operations carried out every year in England alone, our aim to maintain and advance surgical standards in patient care has never been so important. Some operations are minor, while others are life-saving or will dramatically enhance the quality of life. In every case, the patient places their trust in the hands of the surgeon.

Independent of the NHS, the College relies heavily on charitable support to fund the development of these activities. Legacies and donations from grant-giving trusts, companies and individuals provide an essential source of income, and allow us to fund important new projects and initiatives.

The College continues to sustain and improve surgical standards throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Our training, education and research programmes are intended to advance the knowledge and skills of surgeons so that the treatment received by patients is of the highest possible standard.

The National Brain Appeal

The National Brain Appeal is the only charity dedicated to raising funds for The National Hospital and the UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology (IoN).

Queen Square is regarded as the ‘cradle of British neurology’. It is one of the world’s leading neuroscience centres providing translational research, diagnosis, treatment and care of patients with neurological and neuromuscular conditions including multiple sclerosis (MS), dementia, brain cancer, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, brain injury and many more.

One in six people in the UK are affected by a neurological condition. That’s more than the number of people living with cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes combined. In spite of this there has been a continuing lack of national prioritisation to deliver better outcomes for those affected.

Our aim is to improve the outcome and quality of life for everyone with a neurological disorder by funding pioneering research, providing access to the latest technology for expert diagnosis and training tomorrow’s leading clinicians.

Your help can make this possible.
