There are many ways you can help us. From being a member or volunteering to fundraising for our charity, we want to hear from you. If you are keen to get involved and help us, then this section is for you. Here, you can learn about what it means to us to be a foundation trust and how you can become a member and join in too. You help our charity – i care – get to where it needs to be; providing items that are above and beyond what the NHS can fund. We’d love to hear from you with any ideas for fundraising. Our army of volunteers makes sure our patients get a little bit of extra help while in our care, as do the League of Friends that can be found in many of our community hospitals.

Working in partnership statement
We work with a range of local and regional organisations in order to develop and deliver community health and social care services. These organisations include the acute trusts, the clinical commissioning groups and local authorities within Kent and Medway, East Sussex and London.
The trust also works in partnership with its patients, public and other community and voluntary sector groups to make sure that the services it provides are relevant to local people and provided in the best way.
