The Trust’s Charitable Funds enable people to experience things which are not part of core NHS spending.
Through the generosity of thousands of people over the years, those in our care have benefited from additional resources, enhanced patient care and improved therapeutic environments. They have had the invaluable opportunity of learning new skills, gaining experience in meaningful activities, building new relationships and improving their self-esteem and self-worth.
The Trust’s Charitable Funds are also used for staff welfare and improving the working and learning environments throughout the Trust.
These benefits could not be offered without your generosity.
Our Charitable Funds consist of a main charity and six special purpose charities:
- Countywide Mental Health Services (Gloucestershire)
- West Gloucestershire Mental Health Services
- North Gloucestershire Mental Health Services
- South Gloucestershire Mental Health Services
- Children and Young Persons Mental Health Services (Gloucestershire)
- Herefordshire Mental Health Services Charity
People offering gifts are welcome to suggest how they might wish to see their donation used. However, ²gether NHS Foundation Trust Charitable Fund only accepts unrestricted donations; that is, gifts which may be used for any of the charitable purposes covered by the funds.
If you wish to know which Charitable Fund relates to which part of the Trust’s services please contact the Trust’s finance department on 0300 421 8100 or email 2gnft.Financial-Accounts-Team@nhs.net.
How you can help
However large or small your donation is to one of our charities, you will be making a massive difference and could help us quite literally save a life.
By making a charitable contribution in a will, you can help us to provide additional activities and innovative initiatives that support people through their illness. If you are thinking about offering this type of gift, the Trust’s finance department are happy to provide advice on how to proceed. Please telephone 0300 421 8100 to speak to a member of the finance department or email 2gnft.Financial-Accounts-Team@nhs.net.
Celebrate a life
In the name of a loved one, you can provide the gift of hope; the gift of a new skill that can be used to forge a fulfilling and meaningful life.
Mental ill heath can have a devastating effect on an individual, their family and their working life. Last year, work-related stress, depression or anxiety accounted for 39% of all work-related illnesses. So it can also have a serious impact on businesses. There are plenty of ways that employers can help protect their workforce by working with us to help educate staff about mental ill health. Businesses can also make life better for their communities by matching employee fundraising; or nominating 2gether as their nominated charity.
Many people are choosing to give charitable donations rather than traditional gifts on birthdays, anniversaries and other special occasions.
Clubs and charities
It is thanks to many local and national charitable groups and societies that our service users are benefiting from enhanced environments and new facilities. Could your club or society be part of this valuable support network for us?
