This year, why not enjoy a day out at a National Gardens Scheme garden - you'll be helping fund the QNI too!
Providing vital funding for projects that help improve patient care.
Visit our nursing heritage website, a celebration of District Nursing around the world since 1859.
The QNI will consider applications from registered nurses in financial need, who work or have worked in the community for a minimum of three years. 'Community' is defined as working outside hospital settings, for example:
*Additionally, applications from Health Care Assistants who work or have worked in community nursing settings for a minimum of 5 years under the supervision of a registered nurse may also be considered.
We will consider almost any request, but help is usually given, for example, with the provision of essential household items, building repairs or adaptations, respite care, specialist equipment such as walk-in baths, stair lifts, electric wheelchairs and amenity bills. In certain cases, the QNI may make regular quarterly payments to clients.
We will also consider applications requesting help from nurses in the community who need some financial assistance at crucial times to help them remain in the profession.
