New Partnership Alert! Care Workers Charity

We are thrilled to announce we have become a proud sponsor of the Care Workers Charity. We are unbelievably proud to be part of this charity and campaign to support those that support our friends and family in care. To promote the cause that no one should have to struggle in silence.

The  CWC support almost 2 million care workers in the UK, contributing to one of the largest workforces. They care for some of the most vulnerable people in our society with little recognition and often no reward.

Care workers face challenges every day such as loss of income, inconsistent hours, consequences of low recruitment and retention and lack adequate resources to help care workers do their job to the best of their ability.

The CWC supports carers via the following initiatives.

Crisis grants

One-off payment to support someone experiencing an unforeseen or life changing circumstance, such as bereavement, illness or injury and who has no resources to meet associated costs which could include funeral expenses, moving home, travel to hospital expenses, home repairs.

We provide crisis grants to people have worked in a paid role in the UK’s care sector and are involved in or support the provision of care. This includes people who have been involved in residential social care, home care, supported living care or day care.

Mental Health Support

The CWC is working towards a more holistic offering for care workers that doesn’t just involve financial aid and part of that progression is the introduction of Mental Health Support. We have now launched our Mental Health Support Programme which will be able to offer care workers struggling with mental health free treatment with qualified therapists.

So stay tuned over the coming months to see some wonderful fundraising ideas we will be working on.
