Where will my donation be used?
The money raised for NHS Charities Together will be distributed to NHS charities across the UK who provide whatever support will make the biggest difference for the staff, volunteers and patients. That could include providing ways for isolated patients to speak to loved ones – for example using electronic devices, a place to rest for staff working long hours and specialised psychological support for those struggling with stress, trauma and separation from their loved ones. The funds are also helping to support vital partnerships outside hospitals, such as hospices, community healthcare and social care so they can provide care to patients, volunteers and staff outside of hospital. Your contribution really will make a difference at what is undoubtedly the most challenging time in the history of the NHS.
NHS charities are also providing additional support where it is most needed by staff, volunteers and patients, with a focus on support for people who are disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 crisis, such as patients and staff from BAME communities and high-risk groups like those living with disabilities.
In the longer term the money raised will also fund programmes to help staff and families recover fully once the crisis has abated, reducing the long-term impact on them and the people they care about.
We have set a target of £2,000 but we are hoping this will be exceeded.
Every donation, no matter how small, counts.
Thank you for your kindness.
