The Trustees are able to make grants at their discretion, to help post registration nurses and midwives who are working in the Guildford area, to undergo courses of study and further their professional development.

We can fund:

  • In house training events and lectures
  • Cost of courses leading to specialist qualifications
  • Attendance at conferences and study days

The Trustees are unable to make grants for living expenses, child care or debts.

Accordingly we welcome applications from individuals, or nursing service managers, for funding for course fees or other costs, to enable nurses and midwives in the Guildford area to further their professional education and development. We are particularly keen to fund individuals where the outcomes of their course / study will enhance patient care in the local area. The Ted Adams Trust complies with the GDPR regulations May 2018 - full details available on request.


I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to the Ted Adams Trust and the Trustees for supporting my funding applications for my MSc Clinical Leadership in Cancer, End of Life and Palliative Care. This has allowed for Non-Medical Prescribing to be implemented in the Children’s Hospice service and in the home setting, allowing Surrey based Children and families with specialist palliative care needs to access medications more rapidly.

I am also now completing my dissertation and the findings I hope will also benefit children and their families. Without the Ted Adams Trust none of this would have been possible and I am grateful for their support in my professional growth and development. Also, Rosie is fantastic and makes communication so easy. Thank you all so much.
