Our strategy

How we will transform the lives of seriously ill children

Our five-year strategy sets out Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity’s (GOSH Charity) strategic plans and vision for 2021-2026.

At GOSH Charity we have built a phenomenal legacy of helping to transform the lives of seriously ill children by raising vital funds so the hospital can deliver life-changing care and discover new treatments and cures.

It is not only those treated in the hospital itself who benefit from this care. The world-class research that takes place at GOSH, alongside its research partner UCL Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health, helps seriously ill children from across the globe.

Through the work we have funded, we have already saved and touched the lives of so many. But we know that diagnosis can be difficult, and the burden of disease can have a profound impact on the child and their family. We urgently need to improve this situation.

Our new strategy focus will be to fund the areas that will enable us to have the greatest possible impact on the lives of those we support. We already know that we can do so much more for children when we work with others, which is why partnership forms an integral part of the strategy. Alongside this, we will focus on diversifying and growing our income as it is only through the generosity of our supporters that we will be able to realise our ambitions.
