Project Funding

Since 1990 The Queen’s Nursing Institute has supported hundreds of nurse-led projects.

These projects are one of the most direct ways in which we help community nurses to deliver improvements in patient care. Dissemination of project results also helps nurses in other areas to learn from and implement new ideas. The programme is supported by the Burdett Trust for Nursing.

At the present time we have not yet secured funding to enable the 2016 programme to go ahead. However we continue to look for funding opportunities and hope to reinstate the programme as soon as possible.

"The difference these plans are already making to the lives of our children and families is amazing. I would like to thank you very much for the opportunity to develop the plans in such a professional manner and with such support.”

"The workshops were excellent: the best personal development / study days I've ever been on. They were a bonus as I hadn't taken in, when we applied, that they were part of the award."
