Become a Regular Giver

Thank you for your interest in becoming a regular giver for The UK Sepsis Trust

 

Being a regular donor gives us a guaranteed income which enables us to plan ahead & continue to deliver our vital services.

Your monthly charitable donation would help to pay (for example) to:

£5        support a family to access our services which give advice and information

£10      supporting a family for 6 months with 1:1 calls provided by a fully trained health care professional

£20      reach 25 GP surgeries in one region with both clinical & awareness materials for both GPs & patients

£50      deliver awareness information & provide a Primary School with life saving literature – reaching both students, staff and parents

£100     provide a hospital with clinical tools, literature and leaflets for both A&E and ICU

Why we need your help:

  • Sepsis affects more than 245,000 people in the UK every year, which is roughly the equivalent to the population of Barnsley!
  • Sepsis can claim a life in under 24 hours if not treated immediately as a medical emergency, and tragically kills over 48,000 in the UK every year – more than breast, bowel and prostate cancer combined
  • Shockingly, many people are unaware of the symptoms to look out for to protect themselves or their loved ones, which can lead to devastating consequences
  • Recovery from sepsis – Post Sepsis Syndrome – can be extremely challenging, with many people suffering from long term health & mental health conditions

The UK Sepsis Trust work tirelessly to make a difference:

  • Our passionate and knowledgeable teams are dedicated to providing specialist invaluable support services
  • Our public awareness initiatives aim to prevent unnecessary death or serious injury from sepsis
  • Educating health professionals is at the top of our clinical priorities

From everyone at the UK Sepsis Trust – thank you for your generosity and support, it means so much.

“Being a regular giver is just one of the ways we support the charity’s work in raising awareness of sepsis. We donate monthly in loving honour of our 3 year old daughter, Emilia, who we miss every single moment of every single day.” The Lopez Family

 

Emilia was just 3 years old when she passed away from sepsis due to an invasive Strep A infection on Thursday 5 March 2020, leaving behind her mum Caroline, dad Daniel and 6-year-old sister Valentina.

“After leaving the hospital feeling confused and vulnerable I spoke to the support team on numerous occasions. It was an integral part of my recovery, and their knowledge, compassion and professionalism helped me get through difficult times. I’m so grateful, and setting up a monthly donation was the least I could do.” Alan

 

Alan developed sepsis from an unknown infection. After 2 weeks in an intensive care unit, he survived against the odds, and has since made a good recovery.

“I struggled with my mental health after my baby nearly lost her life to sepsis. Knowing that I could access dedicated support on hand was a real comfort and reassured me that I wasn’t alone. I become a regular giver to express my gratitude. It’s a small amount every month, but if others do the same then the support team will be able to help more people like me.” Louise

 

Aoife was 9 weeks old when she started to display flu-like symptoms. A few days later she was diagnosed with sepsis and put into an induced coma. Thankfully, she survived and is now happy and healthy.
