GRANTS
AWARDED

Small Rainbow in Purple

More than £110 million of the generous donations we received last year has been allocated to the UK’s NHS charities throughout the UK, and is now making a huge difference to the lives of patients, volunteers, communities and NHS staff.

OUR GRANTS PROGRAMME

More than £110 million of the generous donations we received last year has been allocated to the UK’s NHS charities throughout the UK, and is now making a huge difference to the lives of patients, volunteers, communities and NHS staff.

We rolled out our first ever grants funding programme with urgency to ensure your donations could have an immediate impact, with the first of our grant awards being made from 1 April 2020.

Meeting immediate needs

We made £42 million available to meet both the immediate need the pandemic brought and ease the pressure of further waves and the inevitable long-term impact of Covid-19. Twelve million pounds was held back in case of later waves of Covid and used from November 2020 onwards

We distributed funding by nation and region, based on factors including the staff headcount of the NHS trust, health board and linked organisations. And we worked closely with our members to understand where their need was greatest.

Longer-term recovery

From September 2020 we also started to make available funding for the longer-term recovery of the NHS and allocated £35 million to this area.

In 2021 we continue to distribute the remaining appeal funds through our member charities, making sure the money donated by our supporters has the greatest impact in the areas where it will really make a difference.

Community partnerships

In September 2020 we launched community partnership grants and allocated £33million to support partnerships between the NHS and community organisations, helping to take pressure off the health service.
