Poor mental health and suicide rates amongst healthcare workers are much higher than that of the general population. These figures have only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and currently, 1 doctor in the UK takes their life every 3 weeks. 92% of trusts have also told NHS providers that had concerns about staff wellbeing, stress and burnout following the pandemic.

Join our 5k in May fundraiser to take on a new challenge and raise money for a hugely important cause. It's easy to sign up and we'll be there to support you throughout. We are encouraging fundraisers to complete 5k in May, but it's completely up to you what kind of challenge you take on. Whether you walk/run/swim/cycle/scoot 5k a day, every other day, or build up your distance over the month - the options are endless!

Please help us to continue supporting the mental wellbeing of our vital healthcare workers in the UK!
