About Birmingham Community Healthcare Charity
Who We Are:
Birmingham Community Healthcare (BCHC) Charity is the official charity for BCHC NHS Foundation Trust.

What We Do:
BCHC Charity’s mission is to enrich patient experience and improve their time within the care of BCHC services by funding the extras that are not covered by the core NHS funds. These extras are the sorts of things that bring a smile to our patients and their families and carers, and can range from smaller items like books, toys and toiletries all the way up to large projects like our therapeutic playground for children with prosthetic limbs.BCHC Charity are committed to supporting BCHC staff and their patients and service users in any way that we can, whether that’s through supplying extra equipment, enhancing indoor and outdoor environments, providing entertainment or funding research projects. We’ve renovated garden areas, funded beautiful murals, thrown festive parties with food and gifts, provided sensory lighting spaces, entertained patients with music, magic and days out, and lots more besides!

Don't see your charity listed?
You can still jump for them!
Non-partnered charities at GoSkydive offer a unique opportunity to make a positive impact while experiencing the exhilaration of skydiving. These charities, though not officially affiliated with GoSkydive, collaborate to raise funds and awareness for various causes. Participants can choose a cause close to their hearts and raise money individually or as part of a team, diving headfirst into an adrenaline-fuelled adventure that also helps those in need.
Our non-partnered charities still receive the same great discount of £25 off a 10,000ft or 15,000ft skydive that our partnered charities do. All you need to do is pay the balance of your skydive yourself and fundraise as much as you can for your chosen charity on the side!
