Cavell News - December 2016

By the end of 2016, we will have received 1,900 enquiries for help.

That's 36% more than last year.

With your help, we have reached more nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants who are suffering hardship.

With your generosity we've been able to support them, getting money to these amazing nursing professionals and lifting them out of crisis.

Thank you. And in 2017 we want to help more people - and we need your help!


We've had a brilliant response to our research into hardship amongst nurses with hundreds of people reading the survey report and requesting an Action Pack.

Thank you if you've had a chance to get involved - could you share this with friends and colleagues and spread the word on how they can get involved too?

Become a Cavell Angel

Our research has shown that nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants are twice as likely than the public to suffer financial hardship. This is appalling.

So in the run up to Christmas, we're asking people to consider donating a few pounds to help nursing professionals who are struggling.

  • £5 helps a nurse suffering cancer travel to get treatment
  • £15 helps to cover one week's electricity bill for a retired nurse
  • £50 helps provide clothes for a nurse who's lost weight after serious illness

Everyone that donates to Cavell Nurses' Trust before Christmas receives an exclusive Cavell Angel badge. To donate, click below...


We're really looking forward to 2017 and hope you will be a part of the support team that helps Cavell Nurses' Trust provide vital funds and help to nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants who need it. 

There are so many reasons people contact us for help - illness, disability, older age, domestic abuse - and we'll all at some point in our lives meet a nurse.

If you believe we should be here for nurses, have a look at all the ways you could get involved.


Have a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from all the Cavell team!
