The King’s Fund is situated in the heart of London’s West End. Close to shops, theatres, restaurants and the Royal Colleges, it is conveniently located for all the main London railway stations and tube lines.
Our vision is that the best possible health and care is available to all.
In 1897, the then Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII, founded The King’s Fund to raise money for London’s voluntary hospitals. The work of the Fund has evolved over time in response to the changing needs of the population, but our mission – to improve health and care for all – has endured.
The money invested in the Fund more than a century ago provides a substantial proportion of our income, enabling us to maintain our independence. We are not aligned with any political, professional or any other interests.
