How Can I Help?

Fundraise or Volunteer for us

We can’t do it without you – fundraising is behind everything we do.

By fundraising you’re getting people to think about sepsis – ‘What is it’? ‘Who can get it? Why is it important?’ 

People might even learn the symptoms and signs, and help someone in difficulty when the time comes. 

We are a registered charity, and spend every cent on increasing sepsis awareness, improving sepsis care, and providing support to survivors.

Here's some ideas.

Need some inspiration? You don’t need to run the length of the North (or South) Island to make a difference – why not run a bake sale? Order some “Raise the Flag” materials and run a flag day in your workplace. Be part of a team and take part in an event wearing a Trust T-Shirt. The sky is the limit.
