Charitable Funds from UCH London Nurses’ Charity
This fund was established in 1979/80 in memory of Janet Hull, a UCH student and staff nurse who died tragically in a road accident on her return from honeymoon, one week after her wedding. Her parents took the initiative to create a memorial fund to help UCH nurses with travel costs in pursuit of professional nursing studies. UCLH Charity now manages the fund and the Nurses’ League administers the award of scholarships.
The fund is designed to continue in perpetuity and allows for a small annual increase to offset inflation. The money available for a scholarship in 2019 is £1600.
Applications are now invited from members of the UCH London Nurse’s Charity and also ULH-employed registered nurses. The Chief Nurse will chair the award of scholarships.
The Fund is a restricted fund held by the Charity and it is managed by the Volunteer Trustees of the Charity. It is available for associate members of the Charity who are in need of financial assistance in a period of hardship due to ill health, accident or disability.
Grants can be considered for utility bills, respite care, stair lifts, transport costs for prolonged hospital visits, and personal care at home. They may also go towards replacement white goods and specific equipment too enable members to live independently in their own homes. However, funding is not available for residential or nursing home fees.
How to apply – As a registered charity an assessment of financial need is required and this is carried out by the Trustees once an application form has been completed and returned to the Charity. All information on the form is confidential and we are happy to answer any queries an applicant may have. A volunteer or Trustee from the Benevolent Fund group is in the office on a Thursday morning. Messages can be left on the answerphone on other days.
Request for an application form should be made to:-

The aim of the fund is to assist associate members with grants for postgraduate education. This might take the form of a recognised course, a study tour or an educational project that could help the associate member with their career. Applicants must have been associate members of the charity for a year.
Three separate grants are the maximum anyone can receive. If you wish to apply to be considered for a grant, please write to the Secretary, UCH London Nurses’ Charity, 2nd Floor Maple House, 235 Euston Road, London NW1 2BU
