The Guild of Nurses is the first step towards becoming a Livery Company and started the journey for the nursing profession to join the other noble professions and trades who are part of the Livery movement in the City of London. To help nurses progress charitable and professional development, ultimately creating the Worshipful Company of Nurses.
All Livery Companies share an ancient common purpose: to enhance the professional knowledge of their members, to fund and support charitable and benevolent causes; and to support the Lord Mayor and the City of London Corporation. The Guild of Nurses aims to further the work of nurses who have gone before us, offer support to nurses where it is needed and to contribute to the professional development of nurses today, leaving a lasting legacy for all generations of nurses to come. The Company of Nurses Charitable Trust Fund is the charitable arm of the Guild, a charity registered with the Charities Commission.
Why have we joined Working with?
“Working with Cavell Nurses’ Trust will allow the Guild to build on the work of the profession’s rich history and offer benevolent support to nurses when and where it is required. The experience and expertise of Cavell Nurses’ Trust will help the Guild as we develop our benevolent activities and we know that nurses in need will get the help and support they need. We are delighted to be able to work together.”
