With no shareholders, giving back is in our nature.

Our Charitable Trust has a long history of supporting people, communities and charities.

Charitable Trust

Westfield Health

As a not-for-profit company, we’ve always believed in giving something back to the communities in which we live and work. And with the NHS facing increasing pressures and charitable donations more essential than ever, our support can be invaluable.

We donate an average of £750,000 every year to the NHS and health related charities. We donate to both national and local charities, helping out wherever we can and working harder to nurture the health and wellbeing of communities across the UK.

Some of our latest donations include:

  • £1,000 donation to Mobility Trust
  • £1,000 donation to Care in Crosspool
  • £2,000 donation to Sheffield Age UK
  • £1,000 in donations to Macmillan Cancer Support

Project Spotlight

Last year our Charitable Trust donated £50,000 to Sheffield Children’s Hospital to help create a new safeguarding support unit for vulnerable young people.

The newly developed space opened to patients in December 2019 after 18 months of design and building work and features bigger rooms, specialist artwork, and unique space for play.

This specialist facility has been specially developed to support children and young people where there have been safeguarding concerns. This includes patients with potential neglect or physical, sexual, or emotional abuse, where specialist children’s doctors are required.

 

As part of our special centenary donations in 2019, we donated £50,000 to Ashgate Hospicecare in Chesterfield to help transform the centre’s 30 year-old bed bays into nine private rooms to provide patients with a more comfortable and personal space, and last month they officially opened for use.

The new private rooms will completely transform the way the centre cares for its patients and enable them to care for more people at any given time thanks to reduced restrictions compared to the old bays.

Not only that, the new rooms will allow patients to increase the amount of precious personal time they can have with their families and give their loved ones somewhere private to grieve once they’ve passed.

 

Our Charitable Trust recently donated £20,000 to Nottingham Hospitals Charity’s BIG Appeal; a charitable initiative with the aim of improving the parent and family accommodation and paediatric imaging of their children’s hospital.

Evidence shows that having a loved one close by improves post-operative recovery, reduces anxiety, and helps with overall wellbeing. So, providing parents and families with a comfortable space to stay so that they can be near their children is incredibly important.

Our donation will be used to purchase new furniture and room upgrades for the children’s hospital’s accommodation rooms, making is easier for parents and families to be near their children when they’re needed most.

 

Last September, Westfield Health proudly sponsored Mencap’s National Learning Disability Swimming Championships event in Liverpool.

The event is a fantastic way for hundreds of people with learning disabilities to come together and compete at a sport that keeps them active and healthy, with their family and friends in the stands to cheer them on.

Events like these are wonderful for the physical and mental health of the participants, bringing them together to train and compete with their friends and families.
