Did you know that there are around 3,000 benevolent funds- in all shapes and sizes, supporting people from all manner of working backgrounds, such as the police, fire fighters, pharmacists and mechanics.
But until 2009, there was no such fund for Care Workers. Surely, with such a huge dedicated and selfless workforce, people should be looking to support them too?
In 2009, fifteen key industry operators set up The Care Professional Benevolent Fund; setting the foundations for the work of the charity, and providing the initial funds estimated to fulfill the charities aim to help current former and retired care workers who, through no fault of their own, have fallen on hard times.
At the end of 2013 The Care Professionals Benevolent Fund re-launched as ‘The Care Workers Charity’ The Rainy day fund for every day heroes.
