The funds held by the General Nursing Council for England and Wales Trust were originally contributed by nurses and were transferred over to the Trust by the General Nursing Council which regulated the nursing profession in England and Wales for over 60 years.
The Trustees feel that they can best keep faith with this heritage by applying the income from the funds in such a way so as to promote the development of nursing for the benefit of society. This in turn will contribute to the enhancement of the profession because it is through standards of practice and conduct that a profession gains in recognition and respect.
In considering applications for nursing research grants, the Trustees are mindful of the objects of the Trust and the desire to enhance the profession of nursing, rather than any one individual who is a member of that profession.
