Helen Ley Bursary Fund

This fund was established in 2016 to support registered nurses and allied health professionals to access education and training to enable them to best meet the needs of people with advanced MS. This includes, but is in no way limited to, education and training provided by the MS Trust.

All registered nurses and allied health professionals registered with the HCPC who provide services to people with advanced MS are eligible to apply to the fund. The extent of clinical contact with people with advanced MS and the opportunity to influence and improve the practice of others will be taken into consideration.

Applications are sent to the steering committee for consideration and approval on the 1st of each month. Applications received after the 1st will not be sent for review until the following month.
