Supporting midwives in tough times
Cavell Nurses' Trust aims to assist healthcare workers experiencing hardship, providing emotional and financial support to nurses, midwives, maternity support workers and healthcare assistants
When midwives and maternity support workers are going through tough times, Cavell Nurses' Trust gives help. Cavell is the charity supporting UK midwives, maternity support workers, nurses and healthcare assistants, working and retired, when they're experiencing personal or financial hardship, often because of illness, disability, older age, domestic abuse or the recent cost of living crisis (Cavell Nurses' Trust, 2022a).
The charity offers a tailored package of support to help everyone who gets in touch. The charity's staff give emotional support for those in crisis, advice on maximising benefits, signposting to specialist services, one-off grants to quickly relieve financial hardship and rapid emergency funding for those at great risk.
From simple, essential support like money to replace a broken cooker or travelling expenses to medical appointments, to vital life-changing aid such as helping a family flee their home because of domestic abuse, Cavell is here to help those working in maternity teams.
