Help take care of your friends and family when they need you most, and support Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity today. 

Supporting local patients

When you make a donation to the Colchester & Ipswich Hospitals Charity, you help take care of patients and staff at your local hospitals and healthcare centres – providing those extras that go above and beyond what the NHS can provide, and which make such a difference to happiness and healing.

Supporting NHS staff

We are dedicated to supporting the long and short-term wellbeing of local NHS staff and volunteers. They are amazing, passionate people who want to ensure they can provide the very best levels of care to their patients at all times. Help us continue to support their emotional, physical and financial wellbeing.



Supporting communities

We have created the Community Ambition funding programme in partnership with the Suffolk & North East Essex Integrated Care System (SNEE ICS) with very specific criteria to reduce health inequalities in ethnically diverse and deprived communities impacted disproportionately by COVID-19 in Suffolk and North East Essex.

In 2022/23 we supported projects for local patients, NHS staff and our local communities totalling £2.793 million. Together we make a difference.
