Urban Outreach Charity Campaign
For our 2020 Christmas charity campaign, the AppLocum team held a fundraiser for the local charity Urban Outreach. This winter, Urban Outreach are supporting 1200 vulnerable Bolton families. This is six times more than usual as a result of the devastating effects of the pandemic. The money raised will go towards providing necessities such as food and home essentials to vulnerable families.
Thanks to the generosity of our office team and the healthcare professionals who work with us, we raised £282.26 – almost 15% more than our original target! AppLocum then doubled this bringing us to an amazing total of £564.52! Every penny will make a difference to give struggling Bolton families some hope and support.
To help us raise money for the charity, we held a number of fun activities via video call. It was an interesting challenge to organise events whilst taking social distancing into account, but our team got involved in a big online quiz, bingo and Santa Simon paid a visit to the office – all in the name of charity.
We also held a cutest pet competition. We loved seeing adorable pets looking up at us in our inbox each morning and the winner was…Simba! Visit the AppLocum Facebook page to see his winning smile.
Giving back to the community where we’ve grown is an important value to AppLocum. We look forward to holding more fundraisers in the future!
Thank you to everyone who donated to support Urban Outreach. We hope you all had a wonderful festive period and we are looking forward to working with you in 2021.

I would recommend AppLocum! Matthew is always so helpful and great at getting shifts sorted quick and fast. The whole process was smooth and easy starting my set up at AppLocum. Matthew always keeps in touch to inform you what is going on with each job. Best agency out there!
You have helped me so much throughout 2019 coming into 2020. Its been a hard year for everyone but you made sure I had work no matter what the circumstances were, you motivated me so much to apply for my [NMC] pin. You improved my skills and knowledge within these 2 years and I wouldn't have done it without you.
I have worked for AppLocum for three years now and they are fantastic to work for! They are like one big family! They really take the time to get to know you personally, and are so supportive from the compliance officers to the nurse consultants! They are easily accessible and really care about their ANP's.
I have been delighted by the commitment of the AppLocum team, in particular Waheed in finding me long term work during this difficult time and the communication has been superb. I started working with the team a few weeks ago and have had more work than with my usual two agencies.
It was the best experience I have ever had, having been through the same process with other agencies many times before. Obviously, I was hesitant at first having had my own personal experiences with agencies but I soon got a good feeling about this one. Very personal and friendly approach.
I have recently changed my locum provider and the service I receive is excellent There is always a quick response for any requirements and queries I have. A practice managers role is very hectic and having a reliable locum agency takes so much pressure off our working day.
