QNI launches new homeless health project
Community nursing charity the Queen’s Nursing Institute has announced the start of a new three-year project to improve the health of people who are homeless.
The project, funded by the Monument Trust, aims to improve the health of the homeless and vulnerably housed by supporting the nurses that work with them.
The institute said it had developed “considerable expertise” in the area over a number a years, since its first Homeless Health Initiative started in 2007.
The new project will help nurses through research, publications, events, workshops and knowledge sharing, the QNI said.
It will be overseen by David Parker-Radford, who has a background in voluntary sector project management.
He said: “I’m delighted to be joining the QNI at this exciting time and helping nurses to make a real difference to the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in society.
“I want to build on the fantastic achievements of the QNI and work together with nurses who share my vision of world-class healthcare services for people who are homeless,” he added.
