Oxford Health Charity supports those receiving care and working with Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust, your local mental health, learning disabilities and community health NHS Trust. Our charity enhances patient, carer and staff experience through supporting projects, activities and training over and above that provided through the NHS. We help with a wide variety of projects – from improving green spaces, to holding art workshops for mental health services patients, providing more comfortable surroundings in our waiting areas to inviting musicians to hold mini concerts for patients in our community hospitals and much more!

If you choose to support our Charity you are able to select a specific fund, appeal or area of the Trust you wish to help, or simply to our ‘Where the Need is Greatest’ fund supporting Trust-wide.

Perhaps you’d like to support our Respite for Oxfordshire’s Sick Youngsters (ROSY) fund, supports additional respite nursing care at home for children with chronic, life-limiting or terminal illnesses in Oxfordshire. We also provide equipment for sick children which can improve their day-to-day lives, and a counselling service for families who are affected by having a child with a condition requiring respite care.

Or our Community Services and Hospital funds enhance care across the Community Hospitals and community services in Oxfordshire. The range of Community services delivered is extensive but includes District Nursing, Children’s Community Nursing, School Nurses, Hospital at Home, Physiotherapy, Heart Failure, Community Diabetes Service, Children’s Integrated Therapy, Bladder & Bowel, Care Home Support and much more! In addition, of course, to supporting the wards in the Community Hospitals themselves at Abingdon, Bicester, City (in Oxford), Didcot, Wallingford and Witney; as well as the First Aid Units, Minor Injury Units and Out of Hours GP services.

Or our Oxon and West Mental Health fund helps to support patients, carers and staff working within our Mental Health Services in Oxfordshire and Wiltshire.
