Tommy’s is grateful to have the committed support of a number of trusts and foundations.
The Garfield Weston Foundation
The Garfield Weston Foundation and Tommy’s have been working together ever since we established ourselves in 1992. With the generous support of the foundation, we’ve launched five research centres to investigate the causes of and treatments for stillbirth, preterm birth and miscarriage, and to standardise maternity care nationwide.
Established in 1958, the Garfield Weston Foundation is one of the biggest and most respected charitable institutions in the UK, giving approximately £80 million to over 2,000 charities of all sizes each year.
The Foundation’s ethos is to support charities with talented people and effective ways to meet a clear need. The Trustees are highly engaged with the foundation’s work and seek to support quality and excellence, with work or projects demonstrating clear outcomes and direct patient benefit.
The vital seed funding from the Garfield Weston Foundation at the very early stages of each research centre has been instrumental in helping us transform the lives of so many families across the UK.
