Where we're based
Our offices are based in Andover and Winchester, Hampshire. Across the Test Valley we use our corporate giving to tackle local health issues and bring communities together.
Applications are assessed and funds distributed by a small team of Simplyhealth volunteers. Donations of £5,000 and above are assessed against our Corporate Giving Strategy, with particular focus paid to the long-term impacts of the funding.
Targeting community support
Each office has its own community fund to support its local community. We welcome applications from charities and community groups within a 15 mile radius of Andover and Winchester, but generally excluding Basingstoke, Southampton and Portsmouth.
The Alzheimer's Society provides advice, care and support for people affected by dementia. This year, Simplyhealth Customer Services Trainer Sarah Warwick, from Andover, became a Dementia Friends Champion - a volunteer who encourages others to
make a positive difference to people living with dementia in their community.
Sarah said: "Since becoming a champion I have been working with Andover Mind and attend meetings for Andover Dementia Awareness Group."

Andover Neighbourcare is celebrating the launch of its new minibus, thanks to our £30,000 donation.
As the previous minibus was no longer fit for purpose, the donation has enabled Andover Neighbourcare to replace its minibus for members and purchase their very own new one adapted for wheelchairs, making it accessible for all to use.
Used frequently throughout the week, the minibus will be used for day trips for members, day trips for local nursing homes and also hired by local groups for the elderly within the community.
