Power to Change

Our vision is to create better places through community business. We will use our endowment to strengthen community businesses across England. This means providing money, advice and support to help local people come together to take control. At a time when many parts of the country face cuts, neglect and social problems, we want to make sure local areas survive and stay vibrant. We do so by being bold, collaborative, open and informed.

British Heart Foundation

Heart and circulatory diseases are the world’s biggest killers. That’s why we fund over £100 million of research each year into conditions like heart attacks and heart failure, stroke, vascular dementia and their risk factors like diabetes and high blood pressure. We’ve used the research we have funded to develop best practice programmes that have transformed the care of people affected by heart and circulatory diseases, so we can end the heartbreak these conditions cause.

Elemental

The King's Fund

Our mission describes how we will achieve this:
  • through our research and policy analysis
  • through the work we do with individuals, organisations and communities building their capability, supporting them to adopt best practice and share learning
  • by bringing people together through events and networks to discuss and learn from evidence from the United Kingdom and across the world
  • by promoting greater understanding of health and care policy and practice – helping people to make sense of a complex and rapidly changing environment.
