Health & Welfare

Many health and welfare charities find that investing in additional fundraising support has the capacity to transform their facilities and services.

Our work in the Health and Welfare sector covers a broad range of fundraising consultancy; from the more obvious hospital and hospice projects, to supported living, disability awareness, medical research and national charities dealing with global healthcare solutions. Amongst this mix, the services we can offer also vary greatly. We’ve worked with smaller NHS charities to devise new fundraising strategies that will see them able to increase their income ten-fold, alongside delivering multi-million-pound capital fundraising campaigns at some of the major hospitals in the UK.

With hospices our work ranges from the planning and delivery of capital projects for new facilities, to devising annual giving and legacy giving programmes that will ensure long-term, annual income generation.

In medical research we might deliver prospect evaluation work or design and deliver an endowment programme to fund permanent research positions or projects. Whatever the requirements of your health or welfare charity, we can provide a bespoke solution that works for you.

"Chris Goldie was recommended to us from other work he had conducted locally.  He did not disappoint.  As a small charity about to set out on an ambitious campaign, it was essential that we received the best advice available for our limited resources.  He became part of the team and nothing was too much trouble.  His research was thorough and the reports which followed clear, authoritative and professional.  Fundraising is not easy at the best of times but his advice has since proved invaluable and set us on the road to success."
Denis Wilkins, Chair Peninsula Medical Foundation

"The feasibility and strategy work Gifted conducted for us has given us real clarity on our future. It has also given us the evidence and the confidence we need to grow our charity which will mean we can raise vital funds that support both patient and staff well-being in Bradford."
Laura Parsons, Associate Director of Corporate Governance/Board Secretary, Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
