What We Do

The Phoenix Trust is a local charity which offers funding for services not generally available within the NHS.

To support the provision of services to relieve hardship or distress affecting patients’ health where the service is not generally available within the NHS. To ensure that everyone has equal access to the services they need, even if they cannot afford the full cost.
To advance the education of the public in the preservation and protection of health.

We help disadvantaged families by offering financial help to parents whose children would otherwise go without. We have contributed towards school trips, holiday club fees, child safety equipment, ear thermometers and much more.

The Trust considers helping anyone of any age, who lives in the Cirencester area, or is a patient of the following surgeries:

  • Phoenix Surgery
  • Avenue Surgery
  • Park Surgery
  • St. Peters Road Surgery
  • Tetbury Surgery

The Trust funds the Indigo Young Peoples Service, which offers a wide range of services and advice to young people.

We support Cotswold Counselling services, who are training new volunteers to cope with the increasing demand for counselling  of children with difficulties at home or school.

The Trust also subsidises the services of complementary therapists, including an Acupuncturist, an Osteopathy and a Foot Health Practitioner and we encourage the practice of Mindfulness.

Anyone can apply for funding and each application is considered on an individual basis. Please speak to your GP, nurse, health visitor, or social prescriber who will contact the Trust on your behalf. The Trust aims to provide immediate help when it is needed.
