WHO ARE NHS
CHARITIES TOGETHER?

We’re the national independent charity
caring for the NHS

We work with a network of over 230 NHS Charities across the UK, to help the NHS go further for staff and patients. By leading national fundraising campaigns and supporting NHS Charities in their work, we can help the NHS to go above and beyond what would normally be possible and ensure that everyone can have better healthcare.

238 MEMBERS

We work with and provide funding for over 230 NHS charities across the UK; supporting hospitals, mental health, community and ambulance trusts.

600 PROJECTS

We have funded hundreds of projects covering the length and breadth of the UK to help the NHS go further.

£150M RAISED

We raised £150million throughout the pandemic, thanks to generous support from the public and our corporate partners.

How does it work?

Charities have played an important role in supporting the NHS throughout it’s history, and today our 230+ members give over £1million to the NHS every day – so that people can stay well for longer, get better faster, and to support staff wellbeing.

NHS Charities Together began as a membership organisation back in 2000, under the name Association of NHS Charities. Our purpose was to support members through training, advocacy and networking – helping them to have more impact.

In 2018 we changed our name to NHS Charities Together, and when Covid-19 hit in 2020, we launched the first ever national appeal for the NHS, raising over £150million to support staff as they faced the biggest crisis in the NHS’ history.

Since then,  we have continued to raise money and awareness for NHS charities at a national level, whilst still fulfilling our role as a membership organisation, ensuring that funds are sent to where they are needed most. Together, we can help the NHS go further.
