The organisation was set up 25 years ago to provide a safe space of support for Nurses and midwives of Nigerian origin working within the UK's National Health Service (NHS) and social care as a support group.  

Over the years, the organisation has grown to be a force to reckon with within the NHS and care sector, which many nurses, current and retired, have come to appreciate for the array of assistance they have received from members.    

The platform has served as an educational hub where experienced nurses share their wealth of experience with nurses who are either newly qualified or new in the system.  


They work in collaboration with other health service providers across the country and have members who hold senior roles in the NHS.


They have had many notable achievements in this time; such as partnering with Nigerian nurses in Europe and the US to collaborate on sharing knowledge and best practice experience with their Nigerian counterpart for better healthcare delivery in Nigeria.


The other being that, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nigerian Nurses Charitable Organisation were the first to provide one of the biggest conversational platforms for nurses, midwives and social care professionals to gather.  They led the way and others followed. 


The weekly meetings were attended by very senior decision and policy makers across the NHS, who were able to hear first-hand the challenges that nurses, midwives & social care professionals were facing at their respective NHS Trusts around the country. 


This platform was a safe haven to many where they were heard and decisions were reached to better support and protect healthcare workers during the pandemic. 


The organisation is celebrating 25 years with a retreat on the weekend of 1st December with a great lineup of speakers, that includes leading figures in the NHS with a staggering wealth of experience at every level of the profession, which will no doubt impact the next 25 years and more.  

The event is scheduled to run for 2 days, 1st - 2nd December 2023, at Warwick university in the Midlands, ending with gala night, where recognition will be taking place.
