Cavell Nurses' Trust

Supporting UK nursing professionals who are suffering hardship

What we do

Cavell Nurses’ Trust provides support for UK nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants, both working and retired, when they’re suffering personal or financial hardship – often because of illness, disability, domestic abuse and the effects of older age.

We’re a charity, and we offer people financial assistance at no cost to them. We give a listening ear and practical support to everyone who asks for help.

Put simply, we’re #HereForNurses.


Meet people we have helped

In the last year 2,200 nursing professionals have contacted us asking for help and we are proud to be able to help all who get in touch.

Whether it's signposting to partner organisations, maximising benefits, funding new clothes after weight loss due to illness, repairing a broken boiler to heat the family home or funding towards setting up a new home as the result of suffering domestic abuse, Cavell Nurses' Trust makes a big impact on nurses' lives.
