Charitable Funds NWAS Charitable Funds The North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust Charitable Fundwas established by the Trust deed on 31 January 2007 to benefit the staff and patients of the North West of England region. It helps us to provide patient and staff amenities. The Charitable Funds were registered with the Charity Commission (No. 1122470) on 25 January 2008 in accordance with the Charities Act 1993. The Corporate Trustee fulfils its legal duty by ensuring that funds are spent in accordance with the objects of each fund and by designating funds the Trustee respects the wishes of the donors to benefit patient care and the good health and welfare of staff. Where funds have been received, which have specific restrictions set by the donor, a restricted fund has been established. Examples for staff includes facilities for stations such as white goods or televisions, and for patients could be small community defibrillators, or providing training for Community First Responders. Charitable donations help to provide the extras that can help to brighten the lives of patients and staff. These extras wouldn’t be possible without the thoughtful support of patients, family, community members and staff who help donate and fundraise for charitable funds.
