About Cavell Nurses' Trust
Cavell Nurses' Trust is a charity that supports UK nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants, both working and retired, when they're suffering personal or financial hardship often due to illness, disability, older age and domestic abuse.
From simple, essential support like money to repair a broken cooker or boiler, to vital life-changing aid like helping a family flee home due to domestic abuse, Cavell Nurses' Trust is here to help. This year, over 2,800 nursing professionals will ask for help from Cavell Nurses' Trust.
How your donations help nurses in need
Did you know that just £100 can cover essential bills for a nurse suffering from cancer and give hope when it feels like there is nowhere to turn? How about £250, which can help a midwife struggling to heat their home in the winter months? Or £1,000, a sum of money that can help secure a new home for a nurse and their children fleeing domestic abuse, allowing them to feel safe and secure?
Last year, 3,300 nursing professionals sought support from Cavell Nurses' Trust; that's nine every single day. With your help, Cavell Nurses' Trust can help all of these brave nurses through their hardship.
