Support our charity

 

 

Our charity is not about providing healthcare, charitable donations we receive enable us to provide comfort and facilities above and beyond those provided by the NHS. Enhancing a person’s visit to us can make all the difference to their well-being, improving both their recovery and overall experience.

We want you to be confident that your donation will go where you want it to go.

The Dudley Group NHS Charity is an umbrella charity which looks after the charitable funds of all the wards and departments.  Our Registered Charity Number is 1056979.  Once your donation goes into the main charity account it will be directed immediately to your designated ward or department charity fund.  They get regular notifications of donations and the funds are spent by matrons and senior members of staff on the unit.  They are extremely grateful for charity donations and will always endeavor to spend them wisely.
