Charity

The Charity holds and dispenses money donated by members of the public for the improvement of the welfare, healthcare environment, and well-being of staff, carers, volunteers and patients treated by CLCH. Whilst only created in 2007 this was not the beginning of the Charity's story: at this point funds were transferred from Chelsea and Westminster Health Charity who had held past donations received over a number of years.

A principle of charities established for the wellbeing of those receiving or giving NHS healthcare is that the charitable fund should be governed by those with a close link with the Trust providing the care (with the Trust itself being a corporate trustee if possible). As the NHS has been restructured a number of times since 1974 the funds owned by the Charity have moved between a number of different Trusts. This movement tends to occur after the establishment of the new healthcare body.

There are currently 15 charitable funds for servcies at CLCH. Please contact jayne.walbridge@clch.nhs.uk for further information.

Pembridge Hospice Charity is one of our dedicated funds. A dedicated website at www.pembridgehospice.org tells you more about how gifts to the charity transform the lives of more than 1,000 patients and their families every year.

Your support will help people like Zoe and her Nan.

"Nan was diagnosed terminally ill in May 2016. When the time came that she needed extra help, the Pembridge team stepped in. They were amazing. When Nan was in pain and anxious they were there to help.

Zoe And Nan"Not only did the Pembridge team help Nan but the support and care they gave to us as a family at such an emotional and scary time was invaluable.

"We know Nan would want people to help Pembridge so that other families may have the dignity, care and support they need as they face one of their toughest journeys."

How your support can help:
  • £250 could sponsor a new nurse to receive specialist palliative care training and provide the best possible care for our patients.
  • £120 could fund a day of rehabilitation sessions that help people to live at home for as long as possible with independence and dignity.
  • £60 could fund enough art supplies for two weeks of fun and creative art sessions. One patient said "working on art gives me confidence in my ability to stay well"
  • £36 could provide a 30 minute therapeutic massage session at home for someone living with pain and anxiety. The wife of one patient said "when my husband has a massage it is the only day of the week he is not in pain"
  • £12 could buy a birthday present for a patient with no family
