Support our charity

Our charity is not about providing healthcare, charitable donations we receive enable us to provide comfort and facilities above and beyond those provided by the NHS. Enhancing a person’s visit to us can make all the difference to their well-being, improving both their recovery and overall experience.

We want you to be confident that your donation will go where you want it to go.

The Dudley Group NHS Charity is an umbrella charity which looks after the charitable funds of all the wards and departments.  Our Registered Charity Number is 1056979.  Once your donation goes into the main charity account it will be directed immediately to your designated ward or department charity fund.  They get regular notifications of donations and the funds are spent by matrons and senior members of staff on the unit.  They are extremely grateful for charity donations and will always endeavour to spend them wisely.

 

FORTHCOMING EVENTS

COVID-19 Crisis Appeal

Our amazing NHS staff and volunteers are working tirelessly to care for COVID-19 patients. We want them to know that our local community is supporting them. We are so proud and in awe of NHS staff and volunteers as they work tirelessly to save lives. This means staying away from their homes and families, and working day and night to treat as many people as possible in need of care.

 

As NHS staff and volunteers look after COVID-19 patients in their greatest hour of need, our charity can help take care of the wellbeing of our NHS people.

We need your help!

Do the following:

1) Follow NHS and government guidance about how to keep others and yourself safe.

2) Support your family and friends through your social messaging and communication networks.

3) Donate to our charity campaign that acknowledges and supports NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients. Donate here: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/NHSThankYou

Donations will:

1) Fund wellbeing packs/gifts for staff and volunteers on wards/departments (this could include food deliveries, high energy protein bars/drinks, snacks, refreshments, wash kits and overnight stay kits).

2) Help to improve our patients’ experience during this very scary time.

3) Support the cost of travel, parking, accommodation for NHS staff and volunteer expenses.

4) Purchase other items that enhance the wellbeing of NHS staff and volunteers caring for COVID-19 patients.
