The King’s Fund
The King's Fund is an independent charity working to improve health and care in England. We help to shape policy and practice through research and analysis; develop individuals, teams and organisations; promote understanding of the health and social care system; and bring people together to learn, share knowledge and debate. Our vision is that the best possible health and care is available to all.
Comic Relief is a UK charity which aims to create a just world, free from poverty - where everyone is safe, healthy, educated and empowered. Since 1985, Comic Relief has raised over £1 billion.

Big Lottery Fund
The Big Lottery Fund is the largest funder of community activity in the UK. We put people in the lead to improve their lives and communities, often through small, local projects.
We are responsible for giving out 40% of the money raised by National Lottery players for good causes. Last year we awarded £583 million and supported around 12,000 projects across the UK for health, education, environment and charitable purposes.
Since June 2004 we have awarded over £8 billion to projects that change the lives of millions of people.
Since 1994, National Lottery players have raised over £36 billion for Good Causes, with more than 500,000 individual awards made across the UK. In that same time, The National Lottery has awarded over £61 billion in life-changing prizes.
