Our annual report shares the main highlights from our work in 2021 and our plans for 2022. It also presents our financial statements for 2021.
With the NHS facing unprecedented backlogs, the nation’s health reeling from the effects of the pandemic, and turbulence in government, there is a valuable role to play in identifying solutions and keeping a focus on the long term. The Health Foundation does not deliver care directly – so how can we help?
Our 2021 annual report shares highlights from our work and the ways in which the Foundation has contributed to improving health and care for the UK population. In 2021, we continued to make progress through robust research and analysis; grants for new centres; large programmes and projects on the ground; building capacity through supporting fellowships and networks, and increasingly using inﬂuence as investors via our endowment to make change. As last year, we also gave donations for emergency assistance – donating £2.2m overall in 2021 to Comic Relief, Children in Need, UNICEF and Pathway.
Our annual report presents key our achievements by strategy area, including our programme of internal development that enables investment in our people, how we work together, the tools we use, and the space we work in. We then briefly explore our plans for the year ahead, before sharing our financial review and statements.
