The RCN Foundation is an independent charity whose purpose is to support and strengthen nursing and midwifery, to improve the health and wellbeing of the public. We do this by providing grants for hardship, education and research.

We are here for every current and former nurse, midwife and healthcare support worker, as well as students and nursing associates.

We support individual members of the nursing team by providing grants to those who are facing hardship, or who want to enhance their skills and develop their practice.

We invest in the profession by funding nursing-led projects; and champion nursing by supporting projects that raise the profile of the profession and highlight the contribution that nursing and midwifery makes to improving the nation’s health

We're part of the Royal College of Nursing (RCN) Group but you don't have to be an RCN member to receive our support.
