Success for our charitable funding bids

All NHS Trusts in England were encouraged to apply for funding from NHS Charities Together for grants that could be used to help bring improvements for patients, service users and staff.

Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT) submitted an application for a grant of £50,000, with suggestions from staff across the Trust helping to shape our bid.

NHS Charities Together has now confirmed that our bid was successful. Our services are very appreciative to NHS Charities Together in selecting HCT for this generous grant which will be put to very good use.

HCT will use the money to help provide:

  • 30 tablet computers for inpatient units to help patients stay in touch with loved ones - supported by our staff to use them
  • Bean-to-cup style coffee machines and/or instant tea and coffee for staff bases
  • Refurbishment and upgrade of communal areas at key Trust sites
  • Staff engagement and managerial training – projects to help ensure all voices are heard and to support the development of leadership skills within the Trust to hold open/restorative conversations within teams following the pandemic response
