Benevolent Funds

The Benevolent Funds are available to provide assistance not only to League members, but also to any nurse who has trained at St Bartholomew's Hospital, in accordance with the Constitution. The sub-committee which administers the Fund on behalf of the League is concerned to give assistance to those who are going through periods of hardship.

The Committee welcomes all applications and enquiries; all information is held in strict confidence within the Committee. The Committee is always glad to hear news of members and has the welfare of nurses who trained at St Bartholomew's at its heart. A countrywide network has been established to facilitate local visits to colleagues who would appreciate this offer of support and friendship.

The Committee meets six times during the year, but urgent requests can be considered at any time.

To contact this Committee please write, marking envelopes "confidential", to:

Scholarship Funds

Three funds comprise the scholarship funds of the league.

All three funds are only available to fully paid up members of the League and are for financial assistance with course fees and associated costs of study, for both professional and personal development.

A sub-committee administers the funds and meets four times a year to consider applications. League members are urged to apply for funding.

Closing dates for receipt of scholarship application forms (also advertised in the League News):
 6th September 2020; 8th November 2020; 7th March 2021; 9th May 2021; 5th September 2021; 7th November 2021; 6th March 2022.

The Scholarship and Benevolent Funds Committees form a Registered Charity. Donations to these funds can be given using Gift Aid where appropriate. Forms for giving donations can be found in the League News or obtained from the relevant Honorary Secretary.
