At Guy’s & St Thomas’ Foundation, our mission is clear – to build the foundations of a healthier society.

For over 500 years, we’ve been a constant in London’s ever-changing landscape, at the leading edge of health.

Our home in the heart of a global city is vibrant and diverse, but it is also a place with stark health inequity.

Our commitment and work are backed by our endowment, which allows us to take a long-term view while addressing the real and urgent health issues of today. Our focus is on backing people and ideas to drive more equitable health.

We invest, partner, engage and influence to come at big health challenges from all angles. Through our family of forward-looking organisations, we collaborate with our communities, partners and hospitals, and use our assets to transform lives.

Across everything we do, we look to increase our impact by sharing and connecting with others working on better health – from our part of the city to cities around the world. Because a healthier society is our collective endeavour.

Previously known as Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity, we are a registered charity (no. 1160316) and a company limited by guarantee registered in England and Wales (no. 9341980).
