In 2021, NHS Charities Together launched a grant fund enabling NHS organisations to support the long-term health and recovery of NHS staff, patients, community, and volunteers impacted by COVID- 19.
Following consultation across the Trust, our Charity Brighterway submitted a grant to fund three areas of work, which included:
- To develop and deliver a Trust ‘Incredible Edible Community’.
- To develop and produce following staff engagement a Healthy Eating Recipe book.
- To develop existing and new walks, trails, and conservation areas across some Trust sites.
We are pleased to announce our submission was successful and Brighterway has secured £143k to deliver this work over a two-year period.
Chris Dixon, Charity Manager commented: “This is an amazing opportunity to impact many areas and people of the Trust and to bring people together to support their health and wellbeing.” Over the coming weeks we will give you more information about the projects and how you can get involved.
