The Difference Your Donations Make

Your support has an incredible impact on staff and patient health and wellbeing across Edinburgh and the Lothians.

Thanks to our fundraisers, donors and partners, we are able to enhance environments for both patients and staff, improve patient and staff experience and help transform the way that care is delivered. None of this would be possible without people who choose to give their time and money to make a difference for other patients and families, and give something back to those who provided exceptional care to them or their loved ones.
