Run for them ; http://www.strava.com/clubs/helpushelpthem
Day in and day out we help, as best we can, in whatever way we can. Whether we are doctors, porters, nurses, cleaners, radiologists. We are one NHS.
Coronavirus has landed and we are doing the best we can. It’s tough. We aren’t soldiers. We can’t do this alone.
But we are not alone. We are one nation, and together, with your help, we can get through this. Help us to fight the virus on the wards and in the labs. Help us to keep safe, in body and mind. Help us with a place to stay to keep our loved ones safe. Help us with the day-to-day, for childcare, or a cab. Things are moving very fast, and we need to move faster. Give whatever you can, today.
Help Them Help Us.
Where will my money go?
A) Large projects will be reviewed by a council of interested parties - we are inviting representatives from academics, management and NHS unions.
B) For support grants up to the value of £250, NHS workers will email from their nhs.net account, along with their NHS ID card, and reason for grant. An administrator will review the request and then authorise and money transferred via BACS.
C) For support grant requests over £250 two council representatives will need to approve it before monies transferred.
D) Only one grant per funding cycle per person. All grant requests will be published in our 'testimonials' area of the website.
Shouldn't the government be doing this?
Unfortunately the situation has outpaced all of us. The government is already extremely busy, and a dedicated organisation just for NHS workers can quickly get help to them quickly and directly as soon as they need it.
How will you detect fraudulent requests?
All grants will be awarded on two-step verification of the NHS workers identity, either with nhs.net email and ID, or payslip and ID. Our organisation is built on trust, and we trust NHS workers will not abuse this.
What large projects will you be funding?
We are currently looking at donation to coronavirus research, setting up a 24/7 national psychological support service, and ways to boost personal protective equipment for NHS workers during the pandemic. These projects will be reviewed by a council of qualified and interested parties to make sure money is spent effectively and appropriately.
