Our 2020 impact report
Our 2020 impact report highlights the successes of the
2019-20 year and the difference we made with your support.
We believe people’s sight matters
We’re seeing the difference your support makes to people’s lives. There were over 780,000 visits to Moorfields over the last year and we’re reaching many more people worldwide.
Across 2019-20 we awarded 78 grants worth a total of
£4.9 million to support research, training and patient care at Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology.
We’ve supported NHS staff and patients, research breakthroughs and researchers advancing global eye health. We’ve also awarded a grant for a professorship in advanced ocular imaging bringing together engineering and vision science.
This report gives insights into how patients are benefiting including Maisie and her family who praise the wonderful play facilities, and Emma who believes research is critical.
I want to support the development of alternative treatments as well as more understanding of eye diseases which may help future patients.
Emma Beasley, patient and supporter
The patient care at Moorfields is outstanding. Our daughter Maisie has been supported as a patient and we’ve been supported as parents.
Claudia Marr, Maisie’s mum - patient and supporters
We’ve achieved a lot this year and we can’t thank our supporters enough for making our work possible.
Across the year people have supported in numerous ways and here are just some of them.
Thank you for your support in helping us make a difference to the lives of people with sight loss.
We couldn’t have achieved what we have without you.
