Our Supporters

The QNI relies on donations from charitable foundations and the efforts of individual fundraisers. 

The National Gardens Scheme is our oldest and largest supporter and has been supporting the QNI every year since 1927. 

The Burdett Trust for Nursing has been supporting the QNI for many years, working with us to deliver our Fund for Innovation and Leadership programme which are original projects led by nurses for the benefit of their patients.  

The Hertfordshire County Nursing Trust is another important supporter of the QNI; they support the welfare function of the QNI.

You can read more about these charities in the links on the left hand side. 

To read more about individual funders, and how you can become involved, please see the 'Support Us' area of the website. 

Each and every donation enables us to do more to help improve patient care at home and in the community.
