About our charity
We have our own Charitable Fund which receives donations and legacies from patients, members of the public and fundraising initiatives throughout the North East.
Our Charity number is 1078575 and we are regulated by the Charity Commission.
The Charitable Fund exists to support the work of the Trust. We've used funds in the past to provide additional equipment for community first responder schemes and improving the working environment for ambulance staff.
All donations and legacies received by the Trust, from members of the public, are safeguarded by the Trust's Charitable Funds Committee to ensure they are used and allocated in the way the donor intended.
If a donation specifies an area of the Trust's business or a geographical area that they wanted the funds to benefit then we will ring-fence that donation so that it can only be used for that purpose. These are called restricted funds. Please ensure you indicate any specific intentions you may have when you make a donation.
We also have donations that do not specify a particular area. These are called General Funds and may be used to benefit both staff and patients.
Leaving a gift in your Will to the Fund is a fantastic way for your generosity to last beyond your own lifetime. We have received some very generous legacies which have been, or will be, used in accordance with any specific requests.
