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 01452 894761 or email 2gnft.Financial-Accounts-Team@nhs.net.
