About Cardiff & Vale Health Charity
Who are we?
Our hospitals, health centres and practices across Cardiff and the Vale provide healthcare for just about every conceivable medical condition. We are the Official Charity of Cardiff and Vale University Health Board.
We provide treatment to the communities of Cardiff and the Vale, to those who may be unwell whilst in our area, and to those who have been referred by their doctors from across Wales.
Our charity supports Cardiff and Vale University Health Board with almost 300 different funds which cover every medical condition imaginable.
With NHS funding stretched to the max, income to support new and innovative treatment; research; and care must be found elsewhere and that’s where we come in. Through exceptionally kind donations received in the main from patients and their families our charitable funding has been at approximately £1.5m - £2m each year.
There is so much more to do and we want to grow the amount of money that we can spend on research, treatment, patient care and experience as well as on staff development to make sure that Cardiff and Vale UHB remains a premier health care provider.
We don’t replace NHS money; we bring extra value or support pioneering and innovative work for the benefit of those that need us.
We also support the work of our community teams and help to promote healthy living.
You can help us by supporting a specific area of work or by helping to grow our ‘Make it Better Fund’ which supports projects across all of our establishments and community teams in the Cardiff & Vale area.
