Give in your Will or Make a Donation in Memory
Leaving a gift in your Will or making a donation in memory of a friend or family member to UCH London Nurses’ Charity will help support our charity to ensure that we are able to continue our following aims:
- Relieve poverty and financial hardship among associate members of the Charity by providing grants, items and services to those in need.
- Advance the education of associate members by providing grants and bursaries to enable associate members to attend training courses, workshops, conferences and seminars relating to their areas of practice.
- Advance the education of associate members by providing grants and bursaries to enable them to undertake research and publish and disseminate the results of any such research.
- Provide a network to assist associate members to communicate with each other in order to share: best practice; latest developments in patient care; feedback from attending training courses, workshops, conferences and seminars paid for by the Charity; and results of research undertaken.
We’re determined to support associate members who are suffering hardship and we’re proud to support such an incredible past and present workforce of dedicated people in their time of need. But we can’t do it without your help.

Giving a Donation in Memory
If nursing at the UCH has played an important role in the life of a friend or family member who has passed away, you can celebrate their life by making a donation to UCH London Nurses’ Charity.
A donation in memory, like a collection from friends and family, or in lieu of funeral flowers, is a special way to honour a loved one.
The impact of Giving in your Will or Donating in Memory
Donations transform lives and a gift in your Will or in memory of someone dear to you, no matter what size, has the power to create a dramatic impact in the lives of the associates of UCH London Nurses’ Charity. Relieving hardship and poverty, supporting advancement in education and research and the development in patient care, benefits which could reach all of us.
How We Help
Find out more about our Funds
The aim of the fund is to assist associate members with grants for professional and 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.
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.
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. Her parents took the initiative to create a memorial fund to help UCH nurses with travel costs in pursuit of professional nursing studies.
