Burdett Trust is pleased to announce its new programme: the Nursing Now! campaign which will be run in association with the International Council of Nurses and the World Health Organisation.   Nursing Now! aims to improve health globally by raising the status and profile of nursing, demonstrating what more it can achieve, and enabling nurses to maximise their contribution to achieving Universal Health Coverage.  Strengthening nursing will have the triple impact of improving health, promoting gender equity and contributing to economic development, as well as supporting other Sustainable Development Goals.  Nursing Now! will be launched in February 2018 and run to the end of 2020, Florence Nightingale's bicentenary year.

Burdett Trust for Nursing is pleased to launch two new grant programmes.  Grant guidance material is available on the Grant Programmes page of this website
In early July the Trust will launch two new grants programmes: one focused on improving nurse retention and the other on strengthening nurse leadership.  The former will make large grants up to £250K and the latter smaller awards between £10K and £50K. 
The Trustees have selected the theme of 'Men's Health and Emergent Longer-term Conditions' for their focussed 2016 Grants Programme.  It is well known that men's health outcomes are substantially worse than women's.  In some of the most deprived areas of the UK women live up to 12 years longer than men.  Smoking, high levels of alcohol consumption, obesity and physical inactivity are among the leading causes of chronic illness in men.  They are less likely to visit their GP or pharmacist and less likely to acknowledge their illness.  The Trustees are interested in supporting nurse-led projects that will help to define proactive strategies and interventions that promote better self-care and reverse the negative impact that undetected and untreated men's longer-term health challenges may impart.
The closing date for applications is midnight on 2 April 2016.
