Please support your local NHS charity, caring for people in Torbay and South Devon

The Torbay and South Devon NHS Charitable Fund is your local NHS charity (registered charity number 1052232) established to benefit the patients of Torbay and South Devon NHS Trust. Your support will help to enhance and improve patient care, enabling us to fund equipment or projects that are over and above those provided by government funding.

We would love to hear from you if you wish to support the charity or find out about what we do, please contact us. Alternatively you can donate or raise funds through JustGiving. For other ways to make a donation, please see below. Thank you so much!

Thanks to your support

Thanks to the kindness of our local communities, donations received in recent years have funded:

  • medical and other equipment to support patient care, diagnosis and research
  • refurbishment of ward and other areas to create a better environment and generally enhance patient care
  • those extra comforts for patients not funded by other sources such as televisions, trips, holidays, recreational facilities and other entertainments
  • staff welfare, amenities, books, training and education

Find out how your donations made a difference last year, see our: ‘Our year, your charitable fundraising’ report.
