Major donations from charitable supporters are vital to support nursing in the community.
We would like to thank our charitable partners and the generous donations they make, supporting excellent nursing care for people in homes and communities.
The National Garden Scheme has been supporting the QNI since 1927. Thousands of private gardens open for the National Garden Scheme every year and in 2016 together they generated the amazing total of £3.5m. So by visiting an open garden, you can not only enjoy an interesting day out, but also raise vital funds for community nursing.
In March 2017, the charity announced that it was donating £375,000 to the QNI. This funding helps us carry out the whole range of our activities, and in particular to run our Queen’s Nurse programme. In total over the last 10 years, the National Garden Scheme has donated over £20 million to nursing and caring charities.
The Burdett Trust is a major supporter of the QNI’s policy and innovation work. It is currently funding two QNI projects:
- A project to improve care for young people moving from children’s to adults’ community health services, for example, those with illnesses such as Type 1 Diabetes.
- A project to improve the health of male patients, through our Fund for Innovation and Leadership programme.
This HCNC provides a range of support to community nurses in that county. It has historic links with the QNI.
In 2017 the QNI has also received funding from The Patron’s Fund, which distributed money from our Patron, HM the Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016.
