History and Purpose
Awyr Las is the umbrella charity for over 350 charitable funds which together support every ward, unit, department, specialty and community project right across the area of North Wales which is served by the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board.
Donations given through the charity help dedicated NHS staff in hospitals and in communities across North Wales to offer an enhanced healthcare service, offering patients and their families the very best care and treatment available. Thanks to your support, Awyr Las funds state-of-the-art equipment and new facilities; extra staff training and world class research; special projects and additional services; complementary therapies and extra patient comforts which are all over and above what NHS funding can provide.
Since 2010 Awyr Las has funded over £23m of improvements to healthcare services across the region thanks to the generosity of local people, national Foundations and grateful patients from far and wide. This support has made a real difference to the lives of patients and their families, because the charity’s priorities are decided by frontline nursing and medical staff who know what patients need to make their experiences in hospital and in the community much better. As the charity does not replace statutory NHS funding, your donations will genuinely improve the care available to local people in ways that would not otherwise be possible.
