Your support is making a difference
NHS Charities Together and its members across the UK are hugely grateful for the support received from so many since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Funds raised for NHS Charities Together are used to support our 241 member charities across the UK, which provide extra support to the NHS to help people stay healthier for longer and get better faster. In recent years, NHS charities have funded major capital projects, pioneering research and medical equipment, helping patients access the best possible care when they need it most.
They also play a key role in mobilising volunteers to support NHS staff, brightening wards and waiting areas with colourful and engaging art, and build an important link between hospitals and communities. Other NHS charities support mental health trusts, community health and ambulance services.

Trauma training to build resilience
NHS workers are receiving additional support for trauma experienced during the pandemic, thanks to your donations. The funding means more staff in need of someone to talk to about their experiences can access a support network.
