Medical support transforming lives
The Victoria Foundation was created in 2007 with charitable aims which are broad, but firmly medical with the overall aim of transforming lives where there is an opportunity to do so - either through medical provision or by ensuring that young people destined to become the future generations of doctors are not prevented from achieving this due to financial restrictions.
Our focus currently is on providing medical equipment and assistance in four key areas, which the Foundation’s trustees have identified as potential gaps in the provision by The State. This focus ensures that the charity can help transform the lives of those in most need.
The four key areas of TVF's focus:
- Mobility aids – supporting those who suffer from diseases that affect their mobility in both their recreational and rehabilitation needs by providing support where financial constraints do not allow the private purchase of mobility aids.
- Accessible transport – helping residents of the London Boroughs of Richmond and Kingston suffering from any medical condition that renders conventional transport either inaccessible or inappropriate.
- Medical Toolkit Grants and Elective Bursaries – supporting widening participation in medicine by awarding UK students studying at UK universities Toolkit Grants for the purchase books, medical instruments and travel costs to placements and Elective Bursaries with a contribution towards the cost of overseas travel to electives.
- Medical assistance – provision of access to free medical treatment, for residents of the London Boroughs of Richmond and Kingston, at the New Victoria Hospital in Kingston for those in financial hardship where treatment is not readily available on the NHS and where the treatment would be life enhancing together with other financial assistance for medical purposes. NB free treatment at the NVH is currently unavailable due to COVID-19.
We are also willing and able to be creative in how we support our beneficiaries, and we welcome interaction and suggestions from both donors and beneficiaries.
The Victoria Foundation is extremely grateful to The Richmond Charities for its support once again and the 2020 grant award of £1,500 which will enable TVF to provide medical equipment and assistance to a greater number of people in need, hardship or distress in the Richmond Borough.
The Victoria Foundation receives an annual grant from The London Community Foundation Victoria Foundation Endowment Fund and will receive £14,163 in 2020 - 2021 which will enable TVF to provide medical equipment and assistance to an organisation(s) with shared objectives within the Richmond and Kingston area.
Both of these grants will help The Victoria Foundation to provide medical equipment and assistance, which is not readily available, to those in great need and make a difference to so many lives.
