Fundraising and Support from Trauma Care

The Trauma Care Charity was established in 1996. We have a long standing, strong commitment to improving the outcome of trauma victims by establishing best practice throughout the whole chain of care. We achieve this through education, research and publishing. We wouldn't be able to achieve our mission without your continued support and for that we are truly grateful.


Please take a look at the different ways you can help support the charity. Simply subscribing and helping to share our message with colleagues and friends will enable us to make a difference to the care of trauma victims as well as those involved in their care.

  • Group Applicants

    Applications can be submitted from research groups, but the lead applicant must be a member of Trauma Care.

    The grant can be used to support any aspect of the study including but not limited to salary costs; statistical support; equipment; patient and public involvement; and transcription costs.

    The London Marathon

    Keith Lewis has run for the charity each year and been an admirable fundraiser. Find out a little more about Keith: 


    "In 2004 I had an accident at work, which left me with nerve damage to my right side and a numb lower right leg. I spent nearly a year at Salisbury Hospital in the Wessex Rehab Unit. Whilst there it was suggested that I run as a form of rehab so I started on the Couch to 5K. One of the OT’s mentioned Trauma Care to me so I applied to run the 2016 London Marathon for you, which I completed ending a Twelve year story.

    Obviously I continued running and still do my Running events for Trauma Care with our total just short of £6,000. I live in Salisbury with my wife Gracie and two cats, obviously had a change of career and now work for the John Lewis Partnership on the Leckford Estate (our own farm) in Hampshire."
