Our impact

How we are investing in our future movement

Measuring the difference we make

We believe it essential that charities are accountable for their actions and especially their funding.  This is why we have reintroduced our annual impact report to demonstrate to our supporters and partners the difference that are making to the lives of the millions of people suffering from poor musculoskeletal health through the money we invest in research, education, and innovation.

Our measures for success are:

  • Increased awareness of our research and education activities among healthcare professionals.
  • The nurturing of talent within the field of MSK health.
  • The recruitment of advocates for our activities within the broader MSK community.
  • Securing co-funding from partners for our MSK projects.


The results of our funded research are generally readily available in the public domain through the publication of results in the media and the public presentation of research projects.  These presentations and publications are always peer-reviewed to ensure a consistently high quality of research.

Through our educational activities, we are training our next generation of healthcare professionals who directly help patients to live pain-free with improved quality of life.
