Welcome to the Royal Free Charity

​Thank you for visiting to find out more about the Royal Free Charity – on these pages you’ll learn more about our work, our aims and our values, as well as the many benefits of being part of the team.

We’ve got fantastic opportunities to join us in fundraising, so who better than some of the team themselves to explain why it's such a great place to work?


​A welcome from our CEO

We help to tackle some of the NHS’s toughest problems.

Whether it’s funding psychological interventions and rest spaces for NHS staff who’ve worked through the biggest health crisis of a generation or speeding up diagnoses and treatment for patients with cancer, we stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust.

Our employees are an incredible group of compassionate, committed individuals, drawn by the opportunity to make a genuine difference. We come from a mix of professional backgrounds and experience – what unites us all is our commitment to helping the Royal Free London to go further and faster than it can with NHS funding alone.

Put your talents to great use in a fast-paced, stimulating organisation where you can see the tangible impact of your work every time you walk down one of our hospital corridors.

Everything we do is funded directly by our supporters and we receive no government funding. Our fundraising team plays a vital role in connecting our incredible supporters with a cause that matters to them, creating meaningful and lasting relationships which directly impact patients and staff.

We have some hugely significant projects on the horizon, including a major cancer campaign, and we hope that you'll consider joining us at this really exciting time.

Jon Spiers, Chief Executive
