Who are we

Charitable Funds

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. 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 Charity Number is 1096480.

For more information about raising money for our charitable funds, please get in touch.

How you can help

However large or small your donation is, you will be making a massive difference and could help us quite literally save a life.

Legacy gift

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 ghccomms@ghc.nhs.uk. 

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.

Local businesses

We welcome the support of local businesses, who may wish to support our Trust by way of donations or fundraising activities. Please contact us if you would like to offer your support.

Special occasions

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?

Can I fund raise for Charitable Funds?

Yes, but we are required by law to have a written agreement with anyone fundraising for us. If you have a fundraising idea, please email ghccomms@ghc.nhs.uk so that we can share a fundraising agreement with you.
