NHS Charities Together is the national membership body for NHS charities. They have raised over £130million through their Covid-19 emergency appeal and stage two of their funding distribution is targeted at supporting partnership working between NHS charities and voluntary sector partners who play such a crucial role in delivering the vital services that wrap around the NHS and support people's health and wellbeing. The funding has been allocated across the UK using population footprints for Integrated Care Systems which in Sussex is the Sussex Health & Care Partnership.
