Quality Care - everyone, everytime
 

Charitable Funds

The Isle of Wight NHS Trust Charitable Fund (registered number 1049606) manages donations to the NHS on the Isle of Wight.

Who contributes?

Anyone wishing to help improve facilities on the Island can make a donation. It is a way for some to say 'thank you' and for others to help provide additional facilities and services.

How is the money spent?

The Fund supports and enhances the work of the NHS by providing the 'extras' which are not automatically funded by the NHS. These can be items such as specialist equipment, activities for patients and service users, comforts for staff, furniture and artwork for visitors to enjoy. These all improve and sometimes directly enhance the environment for patients, visitors, volunteers and staff. The Fund can also support some staff education and training. 

The Fund is monitored and administered by the Corporate Trustee (the Trust Board) who ensure compliance with regulations set by the Charity Commission (www.charity-commission.gov.uk). All income and expenditure is administered and applied appropriately in accordance with the donor's wishes and in a way which makes the maximum contribution to enhancing both patient and staff welfare and amenities.

How can you help?

Any donation, large or small, is gratefully received and acknowledged. If you wish your donation to be used for a specific ward / department / service or used in  particular way, please specify when completing the donation form.

Leaving a Legacy

Leaving a gift in your Will to the fund is an amazing way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime. We have received some very generous legacies which have either been used i accordance with a specific request, or to support the work of the Island's NHS to provide the 'extras' and enhancements to normal NHS care.
