Community nurse projects receive £70,000 boost

Nurses leading community healthcare projects in England, Wales and Northern Ireland can apply for a share of £70,000 from a charity fund to support their work.

The Queen’s Nursing Institute (QNI) launched the QNI Fund for Innovation this week, offering grants of between £2,500 and £7,500 per nurse-led project.

Nurses involved in projects that successfully apply for grants will be offered the chance to take part in a one-year programme of professional development and support, in addition to the cash awards.

Additional funding is available through charity partners of the QNI for specific conditions including Alzheimer’s and MS.
