About The Healthcare Workers’ Foundation (HWF)
Who We Are:
The Healthcare Workers’ Foundation is a registered charity founded by healthcare workers, for healthcare workers, to address crucial welfare and wellbeing needs. Our solutions are based on research, ensuring we provide the support that is most needed.
HWF is funded entirely by donations and fundraising.We receive no money from the government or NHS for our work.
We provide targeted support to people working in healthcare, enabling them to continue caring for us.What happens to a society when their healthcare workers can’t afford to eat? Or their GPs can’t access mental health support when they need it? When workers don’t have anywhere clean and comfortable to take a break in during a long shift?At the Healthcare Workers’ Foundation, we provide practical and desperately needed help in the form of counselling, financial support, bereaved family support and staff room refurbishments.
What We Do:
The Healthcare Workers’ Foundation’s sole purpose is to care for those who work selflessly to care for us.
We provide invaluable welfare and wellbeing services, from staff room transformations via our HWF Rooms programme to ensure that healthcare workers can have quality breaks, to access to free counselling and grants to ease immediate issues, and deliveries of much needed gifts.
Why We Need You:
Now, more than ever, healthcare workers need our support. They have been working tirelessly throughout the pandemic and are now suffering from the long-term fall- out from COVID-19: many are suffering with mental health issues, burn-out and all are having to cope with ever-increasing workloads to tackle the huge backlog of postponed operations and treatments. By taking part in a charity skydive for HWF, you will be helping us be there for them.

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!
