Story

How it all started

Welfare for Healthcare was founded in April 2020 as a response to COVID19. Its original aim was to fund care packages of food and drink for frontline medical workers at the Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Trust. Within a month our campaign surpassed its £10,000 target through generous donations from the public and 100s of hospital scrubs had been altered by an army of volunteers to be fit for purpose for those who needed them.

25,000 people - from medical consultants to hospital porters - accessed the well-being pop-up shops that you helped to fund," said Jason Levy, Head of Fundraising at WAHT.

Your help has been so amazing; the morale boost has been so much more than you can imagine, said Dr Moolla, Consultant

What now?

Although the initial emergency phase of the pandemic has passed and we are easing out of lockdown, it is clear to us that the landscape of welfare and healthcare needs in the community at large is changing. We are taking the strategic decision to meet some of those needs.

#RememberAnticipateEnjoy

No one has avoided the impact of COVID19. Our buildings and special places have also fallen victim. After weeks of lockdown, some of us have experienced complete isolation and others have been under intense pressure needing to home-school and work from home.

As part of our fundraising, we are launching a campaign to encourage us to think about those places we love, the places that fill us with hope, that we can share with others and where we can create memories again. We hope that RememberAnticipateEnjoy will also encourage us to return to these places and support them by spending money there again too, (when we are allowed to do so), and help re-fuel the economy as well as boost our own wellbeing.

Using the #RememberAnticipateEnjoy & #Makeadifference on Twitter @W_For_H or on Facebook @WelfareForHealthcare simply write a jolly limerick about your favourite open space, heritage site, church, cafe, venue etc and upload a photo or piece of artwork to accompany it.

Let's get the internet full of positive stories and encourage all those who work in those places to show how much we value them! Please make a donation when you do so, if you can.

Who will benefit?

We have identified three causes right now, namely:

RED HILL CARE CENTRE that could do with more support

WORCESTESHIRE ASSOCIATION OF CARERS who support those who have been isolated more than usual whilst caring for individuals who are shielding

PLACE2BE that supports wellbeing of school staff, pupils and their families
