Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust Charitable Funds

We are Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust’s charity.

With the kind and generous support of the community raising and donating vital funds, we provide grants to the Trust to purchase advanced equipment, to improve existing facilities, to provide staff with additional training opportunities and to enhance the welfare of patients and staff.

Right now, the Trust’s hospitals and services out in the Sussex community are under unprecedented pressure as we respond to COVID-19. As always, our dedicated Trust staff are going above and beyond to make sure they can continue providing excellent care to those who need it.

By making a donation via our JustGiving page, we will direct your kind donations to the best place to support our Trust staff and patients.

Please visit to make a donation today.

National Walking Month

Did you know that May is National Walking Month?

Walking has huge health and wellbeing benefits, and many of us are appreciating the chance to get out for a walk more than ever.

So, wouldn’t it be amazing if your daily walk could also support the NHS? You can make every step count and walk to raise funds for SCFT's Charitable Funds.

Make every step count

Choose a challenge, set up a JustGiving fundraising page, and start walking.

Challenge ideas:

  • Walk a marathon over the month - at 26.2 miles, that’s less than one mile per day
  • Go for a 20 minute walk every day
  • Walking with children? On each walk throughout the month identify five different things for the children to look out for, e.g. a flower, a butterfly, a bird, a street lamp, or a big leaf
  • Walk up a flight of stairs at home 20 times a day – do that for 31 days and you'll have climbed the height of Ben Nevis!
  • Complete a FitBit virtual adventure along real life routes like the Pohono Trail, which takes 62,500 steps

Spread the word about your challenge and share regular updates, photos and even videos documenting your progress with your donors and potential supporters. Tag @nhs_sct on Twitter and @sussexcommunitynhs on Facebook, and use the hashtag #WalkForSCFT so we can give you a virtual cheer!

Every penny raised is used to enhance the excellent NHS care that we provide to patients across Sussex.

If your company or business would like to offer support, please get in touch with our Community Fundraising Manager at to discuss how your help can best be directed.
