Trustee Roles at Cavell Nurses' Trust

Are you keen to bring your business, charity or nursing expertise to help our nation’s nursing and midwifery family?


Cavell Nurses’ Trust is looking for new Trustees who recognise this unrivalled opportunity to support nurses, midwives and health assistants facing personal or financial hardship. Nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants are:

  • twice as likely to suffer financial hardship than the average person in the UK

  • three times as likely to suffer domestic abuse

  • and 50% of them have less than £500 in an emergency.


Cavell's ambition is to be the conduit to all the nursing and midwifery family in need, providing financial and welfare support to them directly or through partnerships with a wide network of organisations. In 2020 this need increased by 140%. Cavell estimates long-term demand is at least four times what is currently available.


As a prospective trustee, you will be excited at the opportunity of:

  • delivering Cavell’s vision and mission

  • engaging with passionate and highly experienced colleagues on the board and executive

  • encouraging and supporting the charity to identify and drive more partnerships and funding to deliver on our ambitious strategy.


As a trustee of the Cavell Nurses' Trust you will have the opportunity to be part of an exceptionally innovative and future-focused organisation deeply rooted in the service ethos and commitment of Edith Cavell.


If you are interested in a board role in a dynamic, professional and growing charity where you can add real value and diverse thinking, and see your efforts translate into tangible life changes, please apply!
