Cavell Nurses’ Trust is the charity supporting the nursing and midwifery family through tough times. Cavell provides grants, advice and a listening ear to nurses, midwives and healthcare support workers who may feel alone and are struggling to cope.
Financial pressures can come out of the blue so when health, relationships and bills are causing stress, Cavell is here to help.
The charity offers a tailored package of support to help everyone who gets in touch. We give emotional support for those in crisis, advice on maximising benefits, signposting to specialist services, one-off grants to quickly relieve financial hardship and rapid emergency funding for those at great risk.
The team at Cavell saw a 200% rise in the amount of people supported in 2022, compared to 2021. People seek help from Cavell for many reasons but this rise is mainly linked to the cost of living crisis affecting so many people at the moment.
In 2022 the Cavell team spoke to 2,500 nursing and midwifery staff about how prepared they were for a financial emergency and 69% said they were unprepared, with 41% saying they currently had £500 or less in savings to face a financial emergency.
Cavell is delighted to be charity partner for the 2023 Nursing Times Awards and we’re looking forward to joining everyone in celebrating and rewarding the amazing work nurses and their teams are doing across the UK.
