Connect, Visit and Collaborate

If you work as a Health Professional, or work in the NHS, in Scotland, Wales and England our members can help.

Charitable Trusts can support the freeing up of clinicians and the Government’s putting patients first approach by providing access to tailored and supervised physical activity and cultural activity at the right time in the optimal care setting and, ultimately, reducing the overall burden on the health sector.

Trusts can support the delivery of NHS priorities, including; improving outcomes in population health, tackling inequalities and supporting broader social and economic development through prehabilitation, rehabilitation and preventative services.

And because they are rooted in their communities, they are able to build a relationship of mutual trust, enabling them to link patients with other health and community services.

We’re encouraging all health professionals to connect with their local Charitable Trust, visit them to find out how they can support you, and collaborate with them moving forward.

Please take the time to watch our video. A Welsh version can also be found on Vimeo.

If you’re looking for one of our members, you can find their contact details here. If you work in Wales a full list of facilities, locations and case studies are available here.

You can also find full and detailed reports about how our members can support you. There are individual ones for England, Scotland and Wales.

“Charitable Trusts can support with mental health, integrating care into communities, reducing social isolation, support for healthy ageing as well as dealing with the demand on services following the impact of the pandemic.

“They are ideally positioned to support some of the NHS’ most pressing challenges, including managing increased demand for health and social care, reducing waiting lists, providing early interventions to prevent and reduce health complications and improve people’s wellbeing.

“We’d encourage all health professionals to reach out and connect with their local Charitable Trust and see how they can support.”
