A charity founded to support cancer sufferers in Enfield

The Nightingale was formed in August 2002 to support people in The Borough of Enfield affected by cancer.

The fast-growing population of The Borough and the strain on NHS funding meant that many people were not receiving additional support beyond their cancer diagnosis and NHS treatment.

The Nightingale was formed to fill these gaps in the lives of people living with cancer.

The Nightingale is a registered charity (Charity number 1094435) and is a company limited by guarantee. (Company number 4515844).

The charity is governed by a board of trustees with a range of skills of experience including ‘but not limited to’ medical, finance, HR, marketing and communications. The trustees are:

Andrew Bone
Dr Pat O’Mahony
Teresa Aylott
Flic Henry
Dinos Kousoulou
Samantha Seth
David O’Beirne

The day to day management of the charity is delegated to the staff of The Nightingale, click here to see the team.  We are also very dependent and grateful to our wonderful team of volunteers.

Counselling and support services both for patients and their families have been at the heart of The Nightingale’s mission right from the start.

Who do we serve?

The criteria for support has always been those who live, work or receive their treatment in The Borough.  We serve all those living with a cancer diagnosis, their families and partners.
