Burdett Trust for Nursing launches two new grant programmes

Categories: Care.


The Improving Nurse Retention programme has been developed to address issues with staff retention and the impact this could have on sustainability and efficacy of health care in the UK.

Having been identified as a key concern by Hospice UK’s Commission into the Future of Hospice Care, Health Education England and the Department of Health, The Burdett Trust for Nursing is looking to support projects which could have a significant impact on this problem.

Grants of between £50,000 and £250,000 will be available and will likely be awarded to initiatives that see organisations working in partnership or in a consortium.

The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday 3 September 2015.

Strengthening leadership

The Burdett Trust for Nursing is keen to support projects that see nurse leadership moving into areas that may not traditionally be associated with nursing. With the health and well-being of many people being reliant on multi-professional teams and a variety of players, there is an obvious opportunity to expand nurse leadership in clinical care, environment of care, social care and education.

Grants for nurse-led projects that address these areas, while keeping the nursing contribution to healthcare, may be eligible for a grant of between £10,000 and £50,000.

The deadline for applications is midnight on Sunday 3 September 2015.

More information about these grants, including eligibility criteria and how to apply, can be found on the Burdett Trust for Nursing website.
