Your small change can help us make a big difference to workforce wellbeing.

Mersey Care is now part of Pennies from Heaven, a payroll giving scheme that allows our staff to simply and easily raise money for our new Mersey Cares charity – without doing a thing!

The Pennies from Heaven scheme allows you to voluntarily round-down the pennies in your pay each month to support our charity. 

We will then use 100 percent of donations received through the scheme - up to a maximum of 99p per monthly pay packet - to fund projects set up by staff across the Trust to improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.
