In 2019 CSIS Charity Fund has awarded CWC with an unrestricted grant of £30,000. The funds will go directly to supporting even more individuals working in the UK care sector with hardship grants.

 

CSIS Charity Fund is an independent charity dedicated to helping civil and public servants and their families get through tough periods in life. The organisations that receive CSIS Charity Fund’s grants are chosen specifically because of their commitment to helping people and their dependants during times of financial hardship, distress or personal loss. These bodies are then able to support individuals who apply to them for financial or other assistance, helping them cope with distress of financial hardship, illness, disability, family break ups, low income and job loss.

In 2018 The Care Workers Charity was awarded with an unrestricted grant of £40,000 by CSIS Charity Fund. It enabled CWC to support 98 individuals like Rachel, who has worked for a home care agency for six years, caring for vulnerable adults in her local community. Rachel's world was turned upside down when her son had an accident, leaving him in hospital for two weeks. Without a steady income, Rachel was struggling to keep on top of her bills, including buying everyday essentials.

The Care Workers Charity awarded me a grant to help keep up with essential living costs and travel arrangements to the hospital. It meant that I avoided slipping into debt and could concentrate on Riley rather than worrying about the money. The charity helped me through the roughest time of my life.

In 2019 CSIS has awarded CWC with an unrestricted grant of £30,000. The funds will help to respond to the growing demand for CWC’s support – in the first four months of the year CWC has awarded £71,858 in grants to 195 individuals.
