We provide support and funding to those delivering health and social care in the UK to help shine a light on how to make successful change happen.
We support testing and spreading of ideas, build capacity, skills and knowledge and share evidence to improve health and social care.
Our aspiration is to create a virtuous circle, using what we know works on the ground to inform effective policymaking and vice versa.
Supporting health care improvement
We learn what works to make people’s lives healthier and improve the health care system by giving grants to those working at the front line.
As the second largest endowed foundation in the UK focusing on health, we spend around £30m a year improving health and health care.

Data analytics for better health
We aim to innovate in the use of analytics to tackle real-world problems and build analytical capability in health and social care.
By building a shared understanding of the action needed nationally we want to ensure everyone benefits from analytics and data-driven technology.
Our funding will support the application of data analytics within the health and care system.
Promoting healthy lives for all
Good health supports positive social and economic outcomes for both the individual and society.
We explore the conditions needed for everyone to live a healthy life in the UK and how the health of a population might impact economies and communities.
