The Care Workers Charity
The Care Worker's Charity has over a decade of experience in giving out Crisis Grants to prevent care workers from falling into financial hardship. In providing these grants we know we change lives, providing a safety net for care workers who have nowhere else to turn. The devastating onset of Covid-19 necessitated the creation of a brand new grants stream, as those in social care struggled to adapt to the pandemic. In recognition of the pressure on an already stretched and fragmented workforce, we launched our Covid-19 Emergency Fund at the end of March 2020. Most recently, our Mental Health Support Programme was introduced- providing free counselling through our partners at Red Umbrella, to address the trauma experienced by the social care workforce.
