Help them Help us

HEROES is a charity founded by NHS workers, for NHS workers. We exist to support the welfare and wellbeing of those fighting to keep us healthy and safe during the COVID-19 crisis, and beyond.

Our services cover the physical, mental and day-to-day needs of all NHS HEROES, from doctors and nurses to cleaners and porters. Together, we’ll continue to make a real difference.

You are true HEROES to me and my family for your kindness and this money will take the financial strain that has been keeping me up at nights. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart."

HEROES hits £1M target

When HEROES launched just five weeks ago, we had dreams of raising £1M to support NHS staff. Knowing the critical state our NHS was in due to Covid-19, from our own experiences as doctors, we knew how these funds could be used. And now we've done it. We've raised £1M! Enormous thanks to everyone who has supported us, and to amazing people like YOU for donating and sharing our cause, we’re profoundly grateful. NHS doctors, nurses, cleaners, carers, admin, GPs, paramedics – this one is for you.

Sew Sussex stitch 2,000 scrubs a week

1,600 skilled seamstresses are working tirelessly to make essential protective scrubs by hand for NHS workers in need. Materials purchased by HEROES were cut by Rolls Royce then delivered by SHIELD – great teamwork!

I wanted to say thank you so so much for all of your amazing donations which has certainly helped our staff at The Royal Free Trust get through this most difficult time. I cannot even begin to explain the difference it has made and has helped me hugely in ensuring we have had regular donations of food, hand creams, lip balms and everything else coming in regularly.
