Get involved and show your support
There are lots of ways you can get involved with the work of NHS Charities Together. By supporting our campaigns, signing up to one of our events, organising your own or using your place in an event to fundraise for us, you are making a huge difference to help us support our 240+ member NHS Charities across the whole of the UK.
You are helping to make a difference to NHS staff, patients and families both in hospital and across the community in ways that are over and above what the NHS alone can fund. And we are here to provide you with the support you may need!
Be there for them
Throughout the crisis, we’ve helped fund support and counselling for thousands of NHS staff. And with your help, we’ll continue to do so – now and in the months and years to come.

Standing with Giants
NHS staff have gone above and beyond for us during the pandemic, with many making the ultimate sacrifice by losing their lives in the battle against Covid-19.
Standing with Giants remembers those who have selflessly given their lives for our freedom with this installation of 300 life size figures, hand cut and painted by a team of volunteers.
This wonderful installation is available to view now at Oxford South Park from 19th July until 1st August and funds raised will be donated to NHS Charities Together.

Gratitude: a public art installation
The image of key workers standing together, but apart, is one of the abiding images of our times – each worker socially distancing and standing apart, while at the same time showing a unique coming together.
Gratitude is a spectacular outdoor public art installation which commemorates and celebrates the stories of this extraordinary moment in time. Launching in Birmingham in summer 2021, ahead of a free to visit tour across the UK, Gratitude brings together 49 uniquely-designed human form sculptures, all designed by individual artists and sponsored by different businesses who want to acknowledge key workers and pay tribute to the NHS.
After touring the UK in accessible locations including Edinburgh, Manchester and London, the sculptures will be auctioned in autumn 2021 with proceeds donated to NHS Charities Together.
