The programme will offer applicants a series of up to ten support sessions with a qualified therapist.
Please note that this is not a financial grant, The Care Workers’ Charity will pay the service provider (Red Umbrella) directly for your sessions.
If you feel you would benefit from some support, or if you’re on a long waiting list for mental health support or have previously had support but feel you would benefit from some more sessions, please read the information below:
- Think about how you define what you need support for, we will be asking you to try to identify the area you need help with
- Talk to your GP, mental health support service or regulated professional (such as a social worker, or CPN or similar), you will need to include a letter of support from one of them when you make your application, and they will need to confirm that you would benefit from support with your mental health and that this programme would be beneficial to you.
- Please also be reassured: we will be contacting your HR Manager in order to verify that you are employed in the care sector. We will not be telling them you are applying for mental health support, but only that you have applied to us for a grant.
You are not eligible for this support programme if;
- You are a registered nurse or work for the NHS
