We are an amazing local community, heading into some challenging times. Our role as the charity for East Surrey Hospital, and Surrey and Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust is to help NHS staff go above and beyond for you. For our patients, our friends, families, and our whole community. Now, more than ever, our job is to help get your support to where it is needed most across our hospitals

We are incredibly pleased to be receiving an overwhelming amount of support from people in the local community. Amongst all the generous donations and exclusive offers from local businesses for our staff, we know that many of you have asked how else you can show your support.

Here’s how you can help:

We are working to support welfare of all our staff working through COVID-19. Your support will help us go further for staff during this unprecedented period for the NHS. Visit the Donations page to find out more here https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/SASHCovid19

Whilst we currently do not have volunteers working directly within our hospitals, there are several ways that you can support the NHS and your community during this period. You can find out more information here: https://www.surreyandsussex.nhs.uk/working-for-us/volunteering/

We’ve been amazed by the support from local businesses, groups and individuals, including donations of food and welfare items for NHS staff.

If you would like to donate items or offer other support, please read this important information on what we can and can’t accept at present.
