About Healthcare Workers' Foundation

We are a registered charity, founded by healthcare workers' in March 2020, in response to the urgent need of PPE and other support due to the overwhelming Covid-19 pandemic.

Today, the UK’s three million health and social care workers' continue to face pressures. With staff shortages, they are working tirelessly to catch up on the backlog that the pandemic caused. Many are suffering with their own mental wellbeing working in a highly pressured environment, and others (living below the poverty line) are struggling with the cost-of-living crisis. As a result of these ongoing challenges, we have identified the continuing need for counselling, bereaved family support, financial assistance, and refurbishing staff room rest spaces.

HWF receives no funding from the Government nor the NHS.

Our impact to date includes:

- Distribution of almost £2.25 million in PPE, food donations and wellbeing gifts.

- £96,000+ in financial assistance for healthcare workers living in households below the poverty line

- 1900+ counselling sessions

- Refurbished 15 rest spaces, giving hundreds of healthcare workers access to take a rests pace to recover.

- Supported a dozen families, who lost a healthcare worker parent to Covid-19.

- Made grants of £45,000 to support the children who had lost a healthcare worker parent.

We are here to support the incredible people who take care of us, whether they are a porter, cleaner, nurse, professional carer, doctor or have another vital role in our healthcare sector; we are here to support them, as they care for us.
