Health charities are being invited to apply for free communications support through a scheme that has been launched by the membership body the Healthcare Communications Association (HCA).

A new website has been launched that will enable members of the HCA to volunteer their services to health charities and the NHS, and  any not-for-profit organisation that is looking for volunteers will be able to use the site to request support from communications professionals from HCA members.

Mike Dixon, chief executive of the HCA, said: “These are challenging times for everybody, but especially for the NHS and health charities.

“Never before have all our futures been so intrinsically linked. Healthcare communications professionals need to consider what we can do to help support these organisations.”

Organisations wishing to use the service must email the HCA at the address on the website after which they will be given a personal login to make a request for support.

Healthcare communications professionals who want to volunteer can register themselves on the website.
