The Sirona Foundation is a charitable company established to support the health and well-being of communities especially in the Bath and North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire and surrounding areas. Its purpose is to fund equipment or projects that enhance the health and social care services provided to communities so that local people using these services can maintain their independence, continue with their daily lives and achieve the best possible health and wellbeing.
The Foundation is a legally constituted body with charitable status that has its own Directors who are also the charity trustees. They are Linda Frankland, Dusty Walker, Julie Sharma, David Purdon and Loraine Morgan-Brinkhurst MBE. Our united aims are to make a real difference to the communities served by Sirona care & health and thanks to the generosity of many people over the years donating to the service areas now provided within Sirona, the Foundation has already been able to help a number of people through the provision of new equipment and providing clothes, books and furniture for those in need.
And we want to do more. We want to continue to raise income so we can carry on bringing benefits to local communities. We will try, wherever possible, to respect the wishes of those making donations about funds going to specific areas or for a specific purpose and we also have general funds that can support community wide projects or services.
