Who We Are

With NHS services and its workforce facing increasing challenges, Mersey Cares exists to support developments outside the NHS scope in support of our communities

We want everyone in our communities to have good health and we plan to tackle the social and structural barriers that can get in the way

Set up in 2020 following unprecedented demands on our health services during the COVID-19 pandemic, Mersey Cares is the Mersey Care NHS Charity that plays a vital and growing role in working alongside the Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust to serve the health needs of our communities; to help people keep well and living well at home for longer. 

Together enhancing life-long health, care and wellbeing support 

Funding projects that improve care and facilities for patients and communities across Cheshire and Merseyside, we work alongside our staff to prioritise where funds are needed most; ensuring community initiatives are given a greater chance of thriving. Together, we believe we can enhance and exceed expectations of the health, care and wellbeing available to the people we serve; helping the NHS go further. 

Our vision aligns with the vision of the Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust; to strive for perfect, whole person care that helps people live happier, healthier lives

Our mission is to work in partnership with Mersey Care NHS Foundation Trust to provide the very best possible life-long care in physical health, mental health, learning disabilities and addictions services; beyond what the NHS alone can provide; to help people keep well and living well at home for longer.
