Helping the Homeless

The QNI has always worked to provide healthcare to the most vulnerable people in society. In 2007 we created a network of nurses working specifically with homeless people. In 2011 we launched the 'Opening Doors' project, which has a special focus on homeless children and families, and those with substance misuse problems.

'Opening Doors' is funded by the J. Paul Getty Jnr Charitable Trust and the Merchant Taylors' Company.
