Staff Wellbeing Fund Appeal Page

Over the last few years, 3,500+ members of staff across Dartford and Gravesham NHS Trust have fought tirelessly to overcome the global COVID-19 pandemic. We have been overwhelmed with the support we have received from the community to look after our staff's wellbeing during this time. We cannot thank you enough.

Now, as we begin to see a light at the end of the tunnel, there are further challenges and increased pressures that have accumulated as a result of COVID-19, as well as external pressures including surging living costs which continue to have a detrimental impact on the health and wellbeing of our staff.

Our patients and our staff are at the heart of everything we do, so whilst Valley Hospital Charity remains dedicated to providing exceptional and compassionate care for our sickest patients, the organisation has been able to set up a Staff Wellbeing Fund which aims to support our NHS heroes in these difficult times. 

As well as the support of grants and national fundraising efforts from NHS Charities Together, the Staff Wellbeing Fund has been generously endorsed by local businesses, groups, organisations and individuals who have gone above and beyond in the community.

Thanks to your kind donations, we have been able to ease some of the pressures on our people. We have created an outside wellbeing space for our staff, improved staff rest areas across the Trust, supported a cohort of colleagues to improve their health including making lifestyle changes to reverse type 2 diabetes, and provided refreshments to ensure our teams are hydrated and fuelled during their long shifts.

Your contributions are hugely appreciated and will help to continue to fund initiatives that play a tremendously important role in enhancing and sustaining the emotional wellbeing of our staff. This, in turn, enables them to continue to provide the highest level of care for our patients.

If you would like to support your local NHS staff, please donate using the blue 'Donate' button above.

If you would like to set up a personalised fundraising page for any fundraising activities related to the Appeal, then please click the pink 'Fundraise' button above.

Thank you for your support.
