Who we are and what we do

"National Voices is the leading coalition of health and social care charities"
Health Service Journal

National Voices is the national coalition of health and social care charities in England. We work together to strengthen the voice of patients, service users, carers, their families and the voluntary organisations that work for them.
 
We have more than 160 members with 140 charity members and 20 professional and associate members. Our broad membership covers a diverse range of health conditions and communities and connects with the experiences of millions of people.

National Voices Funding

National Voices is funded by membership fees, grant funding – including a grant from the Department of Heath as one of its strategic partners – consultancy work and corporate sponsorship.

We have an ethical funding policy which is approved by the National Voices board, designed to ensure that funding relationships do not compromise our integrity and our independence of external funders.

Thank you to all those who contribute to National Voices funding, for helping strengthen the voice of patients, service users, carers and their families.
