Why are we fund raising?

Last Updated 15th March 2021

From launch to sustainability​


Project5 was built in response to a surge in pressure, threat and crisis on the healthcare sector.  There is evidence that the healthcare team face mental health risks as the pandemic response continues, with uncertainty about how long these conditions will be experienced, to what scale and to what human cost.  

Many health and care workers face wellbeing challenges such as stress and burnout as a result of continuing and mounting pressures on the NHS and health system at this time. As well as the immediate impact of caring for patients in critical condition, and the fear of catching the virus, staff are often worried about their family’s safety and their ability to deliver the best possible care as the pandemic evolves.


It is the primary goal of Project5 to be of service to the wellbeing needs of health and care workers during this crisis and beyond.  But, in rising up to this challenge - we inherit responsibilities that we must walk towards with our eyes open.

"our desire is to create a sustainable service to meet demand, as it grows"

CEO, Project5
