This is our first Christmas without my wife Elsie. Losing her has been devastating and something words cannot explain. The HWF has supported us in ways we couldn’t have imagined, including helping my son to secure a great internship which may not have been possible otherwise.
Your support and donation will help us to provide access to counselling and other practical support both during the grieving period and into the future including respite breaks and educational and mentoring support for children and young adults.
The Family Fund has been created in response to direct feedback from healthcare workers who expressed fear and anxiety about the impact their work may have on their lives and the lives of their loved ones. We need to remind healthcare workers how much they are valued and that we stand behind them and their families as their supporters and allies.
The Healthcare Workers’ Foundation (formerly HEROES) is a charity started by NHS workers for NHS workers. We exist to support the welfare and wellbeing of those tirelessly fighting to keep us healthy and safe during the pandemic and beyond, and through the public’s donations we are able to deliver free services to healthcare workers including counselling and childcare grants.
The Healthcare Workers' Foundation partners with Harley Therapy to provide free counselling sessions with the UK's top therapists.
Healthcare Workers' Foundation provides financial support for child-care related costs through grants of up to a total £1,500 annually
Healthcare Workers' Foundation is augmenting the Government's response by procuring and distributing masks, gowns, visors, and sanitizer.
