How your donations will help

Trauma research works. It saves lives. But it’s desperately underfunded.

Funding has helped to double trauma survival rates in the last five years in London alone.

Imagine how many more lives you could help to save in the next five years - across the UK.

Trauma research gets less than 1% of medical research funding - less than skin conditions such as eczema - despite being one of the UK's biggest killers.

Funds from this appeal will support the Barts Health Major Trauma Centre and QMUL's Centre for Trauma Sciences. 100% of the donations we receive will be used to fund research, innovation and care to save the lives of thousands of people who suffer trauma, and improve the quality of life for those who do survive.  

Some of the projects in need of funding:
Reducing the number of patients bleeding to death, the leading cause of preventable death from trauma
Examining how to avoid multiple organ failure 
Researching how the immune system could help defend the body 
Trialling treatments for traumatic brain injury
