National Conference 2024

Hilton Birmingham Metropole, 15 and 16 May 2024

Small Rainbow in Purple


We were delighted to welcome so many members to this year’s third membership conference, learning, networking and sharing ideas to support every NHS charity as we celebrated the transformative impact of our collective NHS charity sector.

Transformation in action was the theme of this year’s National Conference – a unique opportunity to come together, explore the art of the possible, stretch our thinking and showcase the life-changing impact of NHS charities on patients, healthcare workers and communities.

Through keynote insights, shared experiences, collective sessions, inspirational examples, networking and an extensive expo, we hope you felt motivated and equipped to connect, share and transform futures in healthcare charitable support – with a bolder mindset and the deliverables to create and realise change in action.


Expand your professional network and connect with fellow NHS charities of all shapes and sizes at this unique national event. Attendees will enjoy a wide range of networking opportunities, including a celebratory dinner and evening social.


Share your big ideas and spark new ones with inspiring speakers, interactive workshops and thought-provoking discussions. Hear from fellow member charities and health sector thought leaders and meet our range of exhibitors and sponsors at the Conference Expo.



National Conference is a chance for members to influence what we do at NHS Charities Together. Help shape our next steps, as we work collectively as a sector to transform healthcare.
