The Finegreen Group is proud to announce they are one of the ten 'founder members' of the Working With membership programme, launched today by the Cavell Nurses’ Trust.
The initiative has been set up to help organisations who value the huge contribution that nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants make to UK society to play their part in supporting a long-term safety net for these professionals when they’re facing crisis.
The launch of the programme comes at a time when Cavell Nurses’ Trust is striving to meet a huge increase in calls for help in the first half of 2017 – 32% up on the previous year. Cavell Nurses’ Trust is here for UK nurses, midwives and healthcare assistants, both working and retired, when they’re suffering personal or financial hardship.
Neil Fineberg, Chief Executive of The Finegreen Group says “Nursing professionals are such an integral part of the healthcare system so it is absolutely essential that they are given the support they need when suffering personal or financial hardships. Being a recruitment and development consultancy, we work first hand with many who are such dedicated and hardworking individuals and it’s fantastic news that the Working with membership programme has been launched and Finegreen are delighted to be a part of it.”
John Orchard, Chief Executive at Cavell Nurses’ Trust said, “At some point in our lives we’ll all need care. This is true for our proud caring professionals too and you can’t read the news without hearing mention of the struggles nursing professionals are facing.
“Working with members are standing together to get nurses back on their feet. This is vital to organisations which rely on nurses to function and because nurses do so much for us all it’s vital for society too.
“I’m excited to be talking to organisations who want to pitch in and become founder members.”
Benefits of the Working with programme include digital tools to promote members’ commitments to improving nurses’ wellbeing, action pack materials to help staff access support when they need it most and supporting a long term safety net for UK nurses.
