Thanks to our wonderful supporters, Great Ormond Street Hospital can give hope to the thousands of very ill children who need our help every year.
Read our Impact and Annual Reports to find out how your money has made a difference to our remarkable patients and their families.
We raise money to enable Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) to provide world-class care for its young patients and their families by:
- contributing to the rebuilding and refurbishment of the hospital
- supporting ground-breaking research into the development of new treatments
- funding the most up-to-date equipment
- providing accommodation and other support services for children and their families
In 2014/15, the charity spent £17.3 million on the following:
With your help, our fundraising reached £81 million in 2014/15, which will help make a huge difference to the patients, family and staff at GOSH. This was another record amount, up by 8.7 per cent from the previous years.
In 2014/15, the funds spent on the hospital's redevelopment varied significantly compared to the previous years. We're unable to redevelop the entire hospital in one go because the work would completely take over and there would be nowhere to treat our sick patients. As a result, the projects are phased over time, which means that investment is needed at certain points. In order for us to make an investment like the £83.4 million we committed in 2013/14, we need to allow our reserves to build up over time.
The money we provide to our other key fundraising areas - research, equipment, and welfare - continues to increase. We are only able to do so thanks to your generosity.
