The Burdett Trust for Nursing is an independent charitable trust named after Sir Henry Burdett KCB, the founder of the Royal National Pension Fund for Nurses (RNPFN).

The Burdett Trust for Nursing was established in 2002 with the aim of making charitable grants to support the nursing contribution to healthcare. The Trust makes grants in support of nurse-led projects, using its funds to empower nurses and make significant improvements to the patient care environment, currently focusing on three main pillars: Building nursing research capacity and capabilities, Supporting nurses in their professional development, Supporting local nurse-led initiatives.

THET is managing two grants on behalf of the Burdett Trust of Nursing and will provide all necessary support to the grant holders (LMICs institutions) to ensure that they are able to carry out the project and maximise the positive impact of their grants.
