The Covid-19 Healthcare Support Appeal (CHSA) was set up to provide funds for charities that support healthcare workers in the UK during and after the Covid-19 pandemic. It forms part of the RCN Foundation.
The Society of Radiographers’ Benevolent Fund has successfully applied for a small fund specifically ring fenced to support our members who have worked during the pandemic and are now experiencing physical or mental health difficulties as a result. We should be able to apply for additional funding if there is sufficient take up. We are aware that support services such as physiotherapy, counselling etc involve a cost that might deter members from accessing services that they need, and this Fund is intended to help with this.
We are aware of how hard our members have worked through the last year and how work pressures are ongoing. We are proud of you all and want to help, so this funding is very welcome. If you wish to apply, or to recommend to any of your colleagues, please see the application form below.
