Since opening its doors in 1852, GOSH has relied on the support of its charitable partners and volunteers to enable the hospital to go above and beyond for seriously ill children.
GOSH is of the world’s leading children’s hospital and research centres in the world, providing world-class care and treatment to children across the UK and beyond. Over 600 children and young people arrive at GOSH every single day for treatment, where it is often a last chance for children and their families who are coping with the rarest and most serious conditions.
Our mission is to enhance Great Ormond Street Hospital’s ability to transform the health and wellbeing of children and young people, giving them the best chance to fulfil their potential.
Every day, 618 children and young people from across the UK arrive at GOSH. This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support. Without you, we can’t help fund groundbreaking research, advanced medical equipment, child and family support services, and the rebuilding and refurbishment of wards and facilities.
GOSH Charity focuses on 4 key areas of funding:
-Advanced medical equipment -Child and family support -Research Building and redevelopment of the hospital and wards A better future for seriously ill children starts here.
-12 research projects were funded across the UK – totalling £2.1 million – through the 2019 National Call with Sparks.
-Construction has begun on our new Sight and Sound Centre, supported by Premier Inn. This specialist outpatient facility, set to open in 2020, will include quiet waiting spaces, a sensory garden and interior design tailored to the needs of children with sight and hearing loss – like Paris, who took part in a workshop to help its design.
-500 Academic and clinical staff will move into the new Zayed Centre for Research into Rare Disease in Children when it opens later in 2019.
