Door to Door Fundraising

Why does Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity (GOSH Charity) use Door to Door fundraising? 

Door to Door fundraising is a very important and highly effective part of our fundraising programme, reaching areas all across the UK with our fundraising appeals. These appeals enable fundraisers to engage with members of the public to raise awareness of the cause and the work we do as well as find new supporters, whose regular donations have been vital in supporting the hospital’s life-changing work. This year, our door-to-door fundraising teams will have 210,000 conversations – and the people they inspire will donate £4m in income over the next 5 years. This allows us to plan the funding for vital projects within the hospital, helping to transform the lives of seriously ill children and support their families.

Who we work with

We work with a professional fundraising agency called Appco UK. Appco UK is one of the longest running and most experienced agencies in their field. Appco UK are also members of the Institute of Fundraising (IOF) and adhere to the highest standards of fundraising.

About our Fundraisers

Our fundraisers are people with a real interest in making a difference to the lives of seriously-ill children. Every day, they raise not only funds but public awareness of the hospital's work.

Our fundraisers are intensively trained on our campaigns by both Appco UK and GOSH Charity, and follow strict guidelines set down by the Fundraising Regulator.
