  • Closing date: 9 a.m. Monday 22nd July

Who we are.

NHS Charities Together is the national charity for everyone who uses, cares about and works in the NHS. We have a unique relationship with the NHS and a unique role as the membership organisation for over 230 NHS charities across the UK.

Collectively, NHS charities give over £1million daily to the NHS, so people can stay well for longer and get better faster. In recent years NHS charities have funded major capital projects, pioneering research, and medical equipment at our hospitals, helping patients access the best possible care when they need it most.

Our vision is a future with a thriving NHS, and we mobilise the collective power of the NHS charity sector to create the best possible healthcare for everyone. Together we help the NHS go further for patients, the workforce and communities.

Thanks to the heartfelt generosity of the public, NHS Charities Together’s 2020 Covid-19 Urgent Appeal raised over £160 million. We have now allocated £148 million to reach every NHS Trust around the UK, supporting the NHS during and beyond its immediate recovery from the pandemic. Donations have funded thousands of projects providing extra support for the NHS, including mental health support for the workforce, training and equipment for community first responder volunteers, and initiatives to prevent ill health.

NHS charities also play a key role in mobilising volunteers to support NHS staff, brightening wards and waiting areas with colourful and engaging art and building an important link between our hospitals and our communities. Other NHS charities support mental health trusts, community health trusts and ambulance trusts.

These vital funds and services are above and beyond what the NHS alone can provide, touching lives and making a huge difference to millions of people when they are at their most vulnerable.
