Small Businesses - Caring for those who care for us

Nursing professionals are the vital backbone of our healthcare system, doing difficult work under great pressure for the benefit of us all.

We were shocked to find that nursing professionals are twice as likely as the public to suffer financial hardship. Worryingly, they are also three times as likely to suffer domestic abuse. At some point in your life you’ll benefit from the care and compassion of a nurse, midwife or healthcare assistant. They bring our children into the world, they care for us in our hour of need and give comfort at the end of our lives.

But who looks after them when they need help?

From simple, essential support like money to repair a broken cooker or boiler, to vital life changing aid like helping a family flee their home due to domestic abuse, Cavell Nurses’ Trust is here to help.

Of the people we’ve helped over the last 3 years:

• 93% said the support they received positively affected their physical health

• 97% said the support positively affected their mental health

• 78% said the support they received helped them get back to, or stay in, work

And the impact of this support goes beyond just helping each nurse, midwife and healthcare assistant who gets in touch. Family members also benefit, like the children who are so often adversely affected by stressed parents struggling to pay bills.

We want to see a society that cares for those who care for it. Wherever you work, whatever sector you work in, you can help to make sure that no nurse, midwife or healthcare assistant has to face crisis alone.
