NHS Wales Informatics Service have partnered with The Wallich and will support us to raise vital funds and help service users gain skills and work experience.

As part of the partnership, the NHS Informatics Service are planning a mixture of activities, from office fundraising in the offices, to giving service users of The Wallich a tour of their offices and offering them work experience opportunities.

In partnership with NHS Wales organisations, the NHS Wales Informatics Service deliver the national information and technology services needed for modern patient care.

Michael Cowley, fundraising and partnerships and senior manager for The Wallich says:

“We’re delighted to be working in partnership with the NHS Wales Informatics Service. We already work closely with the health service across Wales to ensure that our clients are able to access the most appropriate services in their area and so developing this partnership further is really exciting for us.

Their involvement in fundraising and voluntary activities as well as our education and employment programmes will have a real impact on the lives of people affected by homelessness in Wales, helping us to get people off the streets, keep people off the streets and create opportunities for people as they rebuild their lives”.

Wendy Dearing, Head of workforce and Organisational Development at NHS Wales Informatics Service said:

“For me it’s really exciting as we are building on the work we are currently undertaking in skills developments and fundraising but crucially it’s about raising funds supporting those less fortunate than ourselves which at the same time supports the wider once for Wales agenda”

The first fundraising event raised £225, enough to keep a night shelter open for one night and will also be doing a themed Valentines Day collection.
