Who are we?

Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Charity is the official charity of Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust. 

Our goal is to make a positive impact at Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust and within our communities. We proudly support staff, patients and the wider community of our hospitals, by raising funds and support to mobilise a range of initiatives – from innovative medical equipment, ward refurbishments and the all-important extras that make a patients experience and stay in hospital as positive and comfortable as possible.

If you’ve visited Calderdale Royal Hospital, Huddersfield Royal Infirmary or  accessed care in the community, you’ve likely come into contact with some of our work.
