Transform Trauma Appeal



What is Transform Trauma?

In July 2017, Barts Charity launched TransformTrauma, the UK’s first major campaign to raise public awareness and money for trauma research, which includes ways to help improve trauma survivor’s recovery experience.

Barts Charity supports the work of the Centre for Trauma Sciences (C4TS), which manages AfterTrauma.  Although we are based in London, the information on this site and research conducted by C4TS benefits victims of trauma across the UK and the globe.

Last year’s appeal

Last year the appeal was fronted by rapper Professor Green. The appeal raised £325,000 and reached over 3.5 million people thanks to a partnership with the Sunday Mirror and a social media campaign.

This year’s appeal

This year, The Sunday Mirror and Daily Express have pledged their support and the Charity are hoping for more coverage featuring several trauma survivors who are sharing their stories in support of the appeal.

The Charity team have also planned a Facebook and digital communications campaign which features 3 common scenarios: an elderly person falling down stairs, a child falling off their bike and an adult in a road traffic accident. You can click here to see each of them on the Charity’s website, and viewers are encouraged to share the link with their networks.
