About Guy's and St Thomas' Charity

We are one of the UK’s largest charitable foundations. For over 500 years we’ve been based in and focused on improving people’s health in Lambeth and Southwark, two vibrant inner-city areas with urban health challenges.

We work with a range of partners – both within and outside of Lambeth and Southwark – to identify, test and scale new approaches to health and healthcare. We take a programmatic approach, identifying the biggest health issues for people in our communities, understanding what’s underneath these issues, and working with others to address them. We collaborate with anyone who has the very best approaches and shares our drive to make them happen. Whenever possible, we fund jointly with others.

Through a combination of fundraising and our own philanthropic support, we also help Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust provide exceptional care and a world-class environment for patients and staff at Guy’s, St Thomas’ and Evelina Children’s Hospital, as well as in community health services across the boroughs.
