Why we need your support

The Trust’s charity, Caring Minds, directly raises money for services and equipment for service users and carers. It funds projects within the Trust, so you can rest assured that money raised will be helping to provide the much needed extras that traditional NHS government funding does not provide.

Every donation made to the Caring Minds charity, no matter what size, can make a real impact. We use the money to provide extra comforts in our wards and departments, help towards the purchase of equipment and services and also support our staff with training and research.

The Trust receives government funding for healthcare, but there is always more that we can do. We always need extra support, so whether you’re holding a coffee morning or running a marathon, why not think about making a donation to our Caring Minds charity.

We would like you to know that if you decide to make a donation, your gift will be used carefully and sensitively. Money donated is distributed where it is needed, as we support all areas of the Trust. Any ward or department can request money from the charity fund which is governed by the Charitable Committee.

Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust is one of the UK’s largest mental health trusts. Each year over 50,000 people are seen by our services, from not only the Midlands area but also nationally for some of our more specialist services. Many of our patients face incredibly difficult emotional and social pressures, possibly brought about by loss of income and the side effects from drugs. The emotional and physical impacts of their illness can last many years and sometimes a lifetime.

Enhancing a person’s visit to us can make all the difference to their wellbeing, improving recovery and overall experience of our services. We are committed to providing the best possible facilities and environment for our service users, visitors and staff, and with your help we are able to do just that.
