We help registered nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants, both working and retired, when they’re suffering personal or financial hardship. This is often due to illness, disability, older age and domestic abuse.

We're a charity and we help people at no cost to them. There's no membership, we're not a union or insurance scheme. And it all starts with getting in touch.

If you don't know where to turn, you may be able to receive a grant from Cavell Nurses' Trust.
