How to help during COVID-19

Thank you so much to everyone who has been in touch wanting to help the NHS here in North Wales respond to COVID-19.

There are many ways you can help

Stay Home, Stay Safe! Frontline NHS staff go to work to keep us and our loved ones safe. The greatest thing we can do right now to return the gesture is stay at home.

If you want to do more to support the response to COVID-19 in North Wales, there are lots of ways you can help!

You can donate any amount towards the COVID-19 Response Fund, or towards any ward, service or department in North Wales. You may also wish to organise a socially-distanced fundraiser, like a back garden marathon or street bingo. Find out how here.

You can use your passion for crafting to make essential extra items for NHS staff an patients - they need scrubs, laundry bags and more. Learn more here.

Can you donate toiletries, snacks or other extra items to help keep our NHS staff going during this challenging time? Find out more here.

From the 8pm Clap for Carers to our Nel Del colouring sheet, there are activities you can do at home to show your support. Read more here.


Message from the BCUHB Public Volunteering team

Our recent call to arms for COVID-19 response volunteers has had an overwhelming reaction. As we place a pause on receiving any new applications for now, we need to spend some important time going through the almost 2,000 expressions of interest we have received, so please do bear with us.

On behalf of the Health Board, we would like to say a very big thank you if you have submitted a COVID-19 volunteer application. We really are extremely grateful.

If you are still interested in volunteering across North Wales, there may be other opportunities through other routes and across the wider community.

Please visit: www.volunteering-wales.net




Important - do not travel to hospital sites! Please remember, however you choose to support your NHS, do not come to any hospital site to give donations.

Keeping you, our NHS staff and their patients safe

  • For donations of money, there are many ways you can give virtually - find out more here

On behalf of all the NHS teams here in North Wales, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your kindness and generosity.
