We are proud to announce our charity for this year's William Fleetwood Business Awards is Pennine Care Charitable Foundation.
Mental health is very close to our hearts so there is no other charity we would want to work with.
About Pennine Care:
Since its formation in 2002, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust has grown to become one of the UK’s leading providers of community and mental health services.
Our vision is to deliver the best care to patients, people and families in our local communities, by working effectively with partners to help people to live well.
We employ 5,500 staff who provide care to 1.3 million people across six boroughs of Greater Manchester:
- Bury, Oldham and Rochdale – community services and mental health for children and adults
- Tameside and Glossop – children’s and adults mental health, health improvement and intermediate care
- Stockport – children’s and adults mental health
- Trafford – community services and child adolescent mental health services (CAMHS)
Our mental health services provide care and treatment for people with mild to moderate conditions such as depression, anxiety or dementia, or more serious mental health illnesses such as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder and more.
Our community services are wide-ranging and support people to stay out of hospital from birth right through to the end of their life, including district nursing, health visiting, audiology, podiatry, health improvement and intermediate care.
We also work closely with a range of partners including commissioners, NHS Trusts, the private sector, local councils and voluntary organisations to deliver innovative and integrated care to our communities.
Services are located across multiple sites, including health centres, community clinics, GP practices and hospitals.
