The COVID-19 Healthcare Support Appeal (CHSA) is a new, time-limited charity that has been established to fund activities that will support all health and care staff across the UK who have been most adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The charitable purposes of CHSA are:
• The relief of suffering, poverty, hardship and distress among nurses and other health and social care workers and their families and dependants; and
• The protection of the physical and mental health of nurses and other health and social care workers and their families and dependants
CHSA will deliver these aims through a programme of grant-making to organisations supporting the health and care workforce.
This new charity is a subsidiary of the RCN Foundation.
