QNI launches homeless health project

A three-year project to improve the health of people who are homeless has been launched by community nursing charity the Queen's Nursing Institute (QNI). 

The project aims to improve the health of homeless and vulnerably housed people through support from nurses and other health professionals. 

The new project, funded by the Monument Trust will help nurses and their client group through research and publications, events and workshops, and knowledge sharing among professionals.

The project will be managed by David Parker-Radford. David has a track record of developing successful projects, publications, events and networks for the voluntary sector, including work with children and young people.  

Parker-Radford 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. QNI has an incredible history and reputation, so it is a real honour to join the team. 

“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.'
