The QNI is celebrating the charity’s 130th anniversary this year.

The charity traces its origins to 1887 with the grant of £70,000 by Queen Victoria from the Women’s Jubilee Fund.  Visit our sister site to discover more of our history. 

Community nurses are just as relevant today as they were 130 years ago, if not more so. Many people would be unable to live at home without the regular support that they get from community nurses and their teams.

Fundraising for QNI130

We are aiming to raise £10,000 in our anniversary year. All the funds that are raised will go towards funding our Keep in Touch project. This aims to link retired Queen’s or community nurses with current Queen’s Nurses for social interaction and sharing nursing and life experiences.

This vital project runs out of funding in December this year. We are hoping that enough funds will be raised to enable it to continue into next year, so that all the retired Queen’s or community nurses whose lives are enriched by the project will continue to ‘keep in touch’.

It is about unconditionally respecting and valuing a nurse who has so many stories that have shaped them. They share these with you and it enriches your life too.
