RD&E Charity is the registered working name of the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust General Charity, independent registered charity no. 1061384.

The NHS body is the sole charity trustee of the charitable funds in its corporate capacity. There is a Charitable Funds Committee which reports back to the full board (NHS Body) on issues such as setting the charity’s strategy, policies and budgets and overseeing the charities operations.

Our money is raised, held and accounted for independently from the Trust’s NHS funds and is spent exclusively for charitable purposes to improve the health and wellbeing of the NHS patients of the Trust’s hospitals and community services. Our spending, by way of grants to the Trust, supplements and enhances, but does not replace, the Trust’s own NHS spending.
