Small Grants for International Nursing and Midwifery Associations in England


The Florence Nightingale Foundation in partnership with NHS England and NHS Improvement’s Nursing International Recruitment Programme are pleased to announce the opening of applications for small grants for International Nursing & Midwifery Associations in England.

Grant awards can range from £5,000 up to £12,500 per Association and are available to nurses and midwives who lead International Nursing & Midwifery Associations in England. This is with a view of enhancing their pastoral care offer to members of their Association.

The Small Grants Programme aims to support projects that will advance the pastoral support, health and wellbeing and professional support of overseas trained nurses in England.

This grant scheme is sponsored by Ruth May, Chief Nursing Officer England. The improvement project must be aligned to both the CNO’s priorities and the NHS People Plan as it applies to nursing and midwifery.
