You can make a donation to our Charitable Funds and support healthcare to benefit local services and local communities.

You can make a difference to staff and service user wellbeing because sometimes they experience hardship, and need help.

What is the ELFT Charitable Fund?
We provide vital support beyond what the NHS currently provides. Any member of staff can apply for a Charitable Fund grant to support a staff or service user initiative. Novel, imaginative and alternative approaches are especially welcome where they bring benefits to the workforce or local community. 

Support for local communities
Although ELFT provides inpatient care, the majority of our services support people where they live or in one of our centres. So, staff are aware of need in our local communities, where there are gaps, and know where a small initiative could make a massive difference. Charitable Funds do not replace NHS funding, they allow us to do something different, trial new ways, work with people's creativity to improve wellbeing.

We are raising funds to support staff and patients who are experiencing hardship during these unprecedented times, for details on this please select the link  -
