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. We are now concerned that the Covid-19 pandemic has hugely increased the need for our services.

Community Nurses are on the front line in the fight against the virus and the whole nation is grateful to them. However, many of our nurses and their families have paid a high price for their dedication.

Whether it is a result of physical or mental illness, a number of nurses are likely to be unable to work as a consequence of Covid-19. With this in mind we are asking any Community Nurses in financial need to contact us as soon as possible. If you know of any nurses who are struggling, please put them in touch with us and we will do our best to help.

We are committed to supporting community nurses, district nurses, community psychiatric nurses, community midwives, health visitors and school nurses. Recently, we have set aside a portion of our funds to meet the particular challenges posed by Coronavirus. Unfortunately, our funds are limited and the challenge we face is a big one 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.
