Proactive Grants Programme

The Burdett Trust for Nursing strives to be a catalyst for change, an active player in improving the health and well-being of patients. To this end the trustees participate in dialogue and share new ideas with grantee organisations, service providers, other funders and government agencies. The Trust aims to create opportunities to engage nursing stakeholders in collaborative problem-solving and program development.

Through the Proactive Grants Programme, trustees work with a wide range of public and private partners to advance the Foundation’s long-term goals.

All proactive grants are by invitation-only from The Burdett Trust for Nursing.
