The RCN Foundation is here to support every member of the nursing team as they care for patients and improve the UK's health and wellbeing.

Read more about our story and impact

Our grants for nursing-led research and projects, as well as for education and hardship, support professionals to innovate, develop their careers and get through tough times.

We champion the nursing team and its achievements, celebrating the difference it makes to people’s lives. Everything we do is based on solid evidence, and we share our vital insights to help improve practice. Our investment in the profession helps raise its profile and inspire the best patient care.

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.

As an independent charity, we're here for every current and former nurse, midwife and nursing support worker, as well as students and nursing associates.
