From all of us here at the RCN Foundation, we want to say a sincere thank you to all of you out on the frontline caring for the nation’s health during this international crisis.
As a charity solely dedicated to championing the nursing team, the RCN Foundation remains more committed than ever to fulfilling our purpose of supporting and strengthening nursing to improve the health and wellbeing of the public. We wanted to let you know the ways we can help nurses, midwives and nursing support workers during this difficult and unprecedented time. Remember, you do not need to be an RCN member to access any of the support we are offering below.
RCN Foundation COVID-19 Support Fund
In addition to our ongoing support, we have established a COVID-19 Support Fund which will respond directly to the challenges faced by nurses, midwives and health care support workers and provide them with extra support as they carry us through this international emergency. The fund will specifically cover practical support for frontline health care staff as well as psychological support during the crisis. If you are a frontline health care worker and would like to access this support please visit our RCN Foundation COVID-19 Support Fund page. Please note that the RCN Foundation COVID-19 Support Fund is currently closed due to unprecedented demand. Our grants team is still processing applications that have already been received and you will hear from us if you have been successful. Please keep checking our website and follow us on one of our social channels for further updates.
