Better Care

BCHC Charity COVID-19 Response

Thank you for visiting the Birmingham Community Healthcare (BCHC) Charity COVID-19 information page.

Our amazing NHS colleagues are going above and beyond the call of duty for our patients and service users, and we want to ensure we can support them to have everything they need to continue doing so. As BCHC services begin the restoration process, our focus at this time is to ensure that we provide the best care for our patients, helping services adapt to new ways of working, as well as supporting our colleagues health and wellbeing.

Thank you!

As an NHS charity, it is of the utmost importance to us that we look out for the needs and safety of our patients, service users and colleagues and thanks to the incredible generosity of our donors, fundraisers, local businesses and the NHS Charities Together appeal, we have been able to make a real difference over the past 12 months. As of the end of March 2021, we've received over £440,000 towards our COVID-19 response:

How You Can Help Us Continue to Make A Difference

Thank you so much for supporting BCHC Charity at this challenging time. We are currently taking donations via our JustGiving page in order to support our patients, service users and colleagues throughout the pandemic.

Find out more and make a direct donation here.

Please help by giving what you can today so that we can continue with our essential support. We are so grateful for any and all donations we receive; they make such a difference to those accessing and staffing our services across the city.

We understand that times are tough for everyone, and obviously we don’t expect everyone to be able to make a donation. Whilst we will not be running any face-to-face events until 2021, we still need the support of a fantastic fundraisers. There are lots of ways you can raise funds for BCHC Charity, and if you prefer to wait until our in-person events are back up and running, do get in touch and we can add you to our waiting list.

Need some fundraising inspiration? Why not try:

  •  a sponsored event: Choose a classic solo fundraiser such as a head shave, leg wax or silence, or choose an activity that means something to you

  •  an endurance event: Choose an activity you enjoy that you can do from home, decide how long you’ll attempt to do it, and ask for sponsorship throughout your event. You could choose to do a 24hr movie marathon, a live video gaming or podcast stream, a distance event on your treadmill or exercise bike; whatever works for you!

  •  a 'give it up' fundraiser: Give up something like smoking, alcohol, or chocolate for a specified time period and be sponsored to do so

  •  'donating the difference': If you are currently working from home, you could save up the money you would usually spend on transport, treats from the vending machine, or hot drinks and donate this at the end of the month

  •  become a Facebook fundraiser - Facebook allows you to add a donate button; why not hold a fundraiser for BCHC Charity? 

  • Big Blue Day - Every year we hold a day of fun blue-themed fundraising; this year Big Blue Day will be held on Wednesday 6th October.

Alternatively, we are also accepting donations in kind, please contact the Charity Team on 0121 466 7314 or via email for further details on the items we are able to accept. 

Anything you can do to help us continue to make a difference during what will undoubtedly be a challenging time for the charity would be greatly welcomed.
