The Association of NHS Charities
History

We seek to support, and to be the voice of all NHS Charities
in England and Wales.

The principal aim of the Association is to promote the effective working of NHS Charities. We do this by:

  • providing an authoritative voice for NHS Charities
    and representing their interests to other charities,
    voluntary bodies and statutory bodies
  • providing a forum for discussion of matters of
    mutual interest
  • collating and disseminating information and advice
    on issues of concern to NHS Charities
  • promoting and encouraging the implementation
    of best charity practice to member charities
  • providing information, advice, training and
    development opportunities for Trustees and their
    senior staff.

NHS Charities collectively hold over £2bn of assets and receive an annual income that exceeds £300m. Promoting the effective working of NHS Charities therefore aims to ensure that this enormous charitable resource is used effectively and efficiently, to improve the experience of, and therefore provide a benefit to all users of NHS hospitals and other NHS services.
