The Engage Charity Health Fund extends free health cover to all employees of the Sussex Cancer Fund.

Funded by employee benefits specialist, Engage Health Group, this benefit is designed to provide the employees of small charities with free dental and optical care, physiotherapy, massage, virtual GP, CBT and counselling services.

Employee benefit provision is commonplace in the private sector and has become a big area of focus in recent years, with many companies designing their benefits strategy specifically to attract and retain the best calibre of staff.  An attractive benefits package has also been proven to improve productivity and morale, and to drive higher levels of employee engagement and loyalty.

Nick Hale, Engage Health Group’s founding Director and developer of the Health Fund commented, “The Health Fund has been in operation for almost two years now and it’s been fantastic to see how positively it has been received by the current recipients (Rockinghorse and Starr Trust).  We had a number of submissions from worthy causes and we’re delighted that the Sussex Cancer Fund, who do such a brilliant job supporting local people in conjunction with the NHS, will now benefit.”

The Sussex Cancer Fund works alongside the NHS to provide the best possible cancer care to patients in Sussex.  They assist with providing the day-to-day extras, to make treatment more bearable and to ensure that the treatment journey is as manageable and as stress-free as possible for patients.  They have also been involved in bricks and mortar projects such as the Horizon Centre and refurbishment of the chemotherapy suite, as well as funding additional services such as clinical acupuncture and much-needed pieces of clinical equipment.

Joanna Godden from the Sussex Cancer Fund commented, “Sussex Cancer Fund is really grateful for the support of the Engage Charity Health Fund, and we were so delighted to have been chosen as beneficiaries. We are a very small charity, and gestures like this from the business community make a real difference to the team. Being able to access the health and wellbeing benefits of the scheme goes a little way to thank our staff for their hard work and provides them some additional support so they can focus on the charity’s mission of providing the best possible cancer care in Sussex.”
