WE ARE HERE TO HELP
The 1930 Fund For District Nurses
We are proud to have been supporting Community Nurses for more than 90 years. In that time, we have helped generations of nurses, both working and retired, by offering advice and financial assistance. Covid 19 and the current national economic situation has highlighted that our financial and advisory support is still required by today’s community nurses.
We are committed to supporting district nurses, community psychiatric nurses, community learning disability nurses, community midwives, health visitors, school nurses and other registered nurses who have undertaken specialist nurse education to work in the community.
If you know of any community nurses who are struggling, please put them in touch with us and we will do our best to help.
Unfortunately, our funds are limited and the challenges we face are big so we are always grateful for donations.
Whether you are a nurse looking for support or a donor who would like to make a contribution, please get in touch.
Who we can help
Community Psychiatric Nurses
Specialist Community Nurses
How we can help
If you find yourself in difficulties because of ill health, bereavement, family breakdown, unemployment or loneliness please call us. We also offer a Telephone Befriending Service to nurses who are feeling isolated or lonely.
Julie had been a community nurse for 20 years until she was disabled by Multiple Sclerosis. She is no longer able to do the work she loved and cannot leave the house without help. When Julie called the 1930 Fund for District Nurses she was struggling on her reduced income and her declining mobility meant she urgently needed to improve her bathroom.
Fortunately, we were able to award her a grant towards the essential bathroom upgrade and provide her with a list of other agencies that might be able to offer additional support. Julie is now in regular contact with us through our Telephone Befriending Service. She knows that in good times and bad she will always find somebody who cares at the 1930 Fund for District Nurses.
Sarah is a Community Paediatric Nurse who was forced to leave her home after suffering domestic abuse. She moved into unfurnished accommodation and struggled financially for more than a year. When she returned to work as a single parent with a 10-month-old baby she was suddenly faced with two urgent and unaffordable priorities. Sarah needed to replace her broken washing machine and buy a new car seat for her baby’s journey to and from the nursery. At this crisis point she contacted the 1930 Fund for District Nurses. We were able to provide a grant for both items and now keep in touch with her through our Telephone Befriending Service.
