Mayday Healthcare is showing its support of the UK's nursing professionals and transforming lives by joining the 'Working with' Cavell Nurses ' Trust membership programme.
Cavell Nurses' Trust supports UK nurses, midwives and HCAs both working and retired when they're suffering personal or financial hardship, often due to illness, disability, older age and domestic abuse.
“The impact this charity has on the lives of nursing professionals is a profound one and was the reason we are looking to offer our support and partnership,” said Nick Poturicich, Mayday MD.
Of the people Cavell Nurses’ Trust helped in the last year:
- 96% said the support positively affected their mental health
- 88% said the support they received positively affected their physical health
- 83% said the support they received helped them get back to, or stay in, work
Nick continued: '"Working with' represents our core values and is reflective of the type of support we like to offer our nursing professionals. Nurses, midwives and HCAs are always present for the general public at their greatest time of need, and this needs to be returned and reciprocated wherever possible. Offering our ongoing support to Cavell Nurses’ Trust is just one way we can pay back the great work undertaken by our healthcare workforce.
Mayday Healthcare's support comes at an important time. Recently research from Cavell Nurses’ Trust revealed that nursing professionals are twice as likely as the public to suffer financial hardship. Worryingly, they are also three times as likely to suffer domestic abuse. Since launching this research the charity has seen a significant increase in requests for help with almost 2,000 people asking for help in 2016, an increase of 36% on the previous year.
Annual members of ‘Working with’ starts at just £100 and gives organisations tools to show their commitment to nursing professionals and increase awareness of the support Cavell Nurses’ Trust can give. Attendance at events and early access to research and campaigns are also offered to members.
