All City of London Guilds and Livery Companies share common purpose in supporting charitable and benevolent causes. The Company of Nurses Charitable Trust is the charitable arm of the Guild of Nurses and is registered with the Charity Commission.

The over-riding aim of the Trust is to benefit the public at large by helping to raise standards of nursing care, encourage health and wellbeing, and save lives.

Funding will be provided to support lectures and educational events aimed at helping nurses to develop their skills and knowledge. Prizes and awards will be given to recognise and reward excellence and innovation. Support will also be given to bodies that can demonstrate they are committed to raising standards of nursing care, and to those that foster the ethos of nursing.

The Trustees of the fund all trained as nurses and are acutely aware of the financial pressures that members of the profession may face at different stages of their careers. They intend to support those entering the nursing profession who may need financial assistance for study purposes, as well as nurses and former nurses suffering hardship who need relief and support.

The Trustees will consider applications for grant aid from individuals and organisations located anywhere in the United Kingdom.  No restrictions will be imposed on the Trust’s beneficiaries, by reason of race, gender, age, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.

The formation of The Company of Nurses Charitable Trust is a fundamental part of our work as a Guild and therefore we encourage all Freemen of The Guild of Nurses to become involved with those charities supported by the Trust.
