Charity helping Northern Ireland nurses this winter

A charity supporting nursing and midwifery staff is urging those working in Northern Ireland to seek help this winter.




Cavell Nurses’ Trust helps nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants all over the UK who are facing a personal or financial crisis, often due to illness, disability, domestic abuse or the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.



Working in partnership with The Honourable The Irish Society, funding has been allocated to support staff working in Northern Ireland and Cavell Nurses’ Trust is keen to reach those in most need this winter.

John Orchard, Chief Executive at Cavell Nurses’ Trust explains, “We know that many nurses and midwives all over the UK are coming to the end of this unprecedented year both physically and mentally exhausted.

“You add an unexpected illness or household job-loss to this, and the financial stresses can be hugely damaging to the lives of nursing and midwifery staff and their families.

“The nursing and midwifery family in Northern Ireland is roughly 20,000.



“From our research, we know that 77% of nursing professionals in the UK are unprepared for a financial emergency so a significant amount of precious, frontline nursing staff working in Northern Ireland could be affected,” he adds.

The charity’s fund has been set up to ease financial pressures faced by nursing and midwifery staff in Northern Ireland this winter.
