The Burdett Trust for NursingGlobal Research Nurses is funded by the Burdett Trust for Nursing

Nurses, midwives and the allied health professions make up the majority of the healthcare workforce and play a pivotal role in direct care to patients.

The Burdett Trust for Nursing is an independent British charitable trust named after Sir Henry Burdett KCB, the founder of the Royal National Pension Fund for Nurses (RNPFN). The Trust was set up in recognition of the foundation, philosophy and structure of the RNPFN.   

The Trust targets its grants at projects that are nurse-led, using its funds to empower nurses and make significant improvements to the patient care environment.

Working independently, and with funding partners, the Burdett Trust for Nursing makes grants available to support the nursing contribution to health care within three key priority areas:

    • Building Nursing Research Capacity: to support clinical nursing research and research addressing policy, leadership development and delivery of nursing care.
    • Building Nurse Leadership Capacity: supporting nurses in their professional development to create a cadre of excellent nursing and allied health professionals who will become leaders of the future and foster excellence and capacity-building in advancing the nursing profession.
    • Supporting Local Nurse-led Initiatives: to support nurse-led initiatives that make a difference at local level and are focused explicitly on improving care for patients and users of service.

The Burdett Trust looks forward to continuing its support for nurse-led projects, working independently and with its funding partners to improve patient care.Watch a video to learn more about the Burdett Trust and Nursing Now:
