We are a charity, set up to improve the health and wellbeing of people in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.
We do this – with your help – by funding developments to community based health services which are delivered to people in their local communities or often in their own homes. We raise money to help buy essential equipment and deliver new facilities for a wide range of community-based health services which include:
Our Board of Directors is responsible for making sure that your donations deliver the most effective improvements to facilities and services to benefit patient care and safety.
We want to put health first. Our local communities are the right place to start. We are passionate about communities and believe that by working closely together, we can improve the health of the wider population across Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.
Healthcare is under pressure and our ageing population is growing, along with the increase of complex, long-term conditions. We work hard to be open, inclusive and accessible; so that everyone in the community can get involved and understand the support we are able to provide.
As well as directing donations to specific community services for equipment and improvements, we organise a range of fund-raising events and activities across community hospitals and other community venues.
Your donations help us to develop services, support Community Hospitals and purchase vital equipment which all make significant improvements to patient care. Your support also helps to develop services delivered in the community and in patients’ homes which can reduce unnecessary hospital admissions and the length of time patients spend away from their home and family.
You can get involved with Peninsula Community Health & Care Charitable Funds as little or as much as you want – whether it’s holding a fund-raising event in your local community, signing up to be a ’Friend’ of the Charity, or making a donation; we value your support and wouldn’t be here without you!
If you want to organise a fundraising event, please contact your local Community Hospital Matron’s Office, or contact:

Donations can be made in person by speaking to the Senior Nurse in charge of the ward or department you are visiting. You can ask a member of staff to complete a donation form on your behalf.
