"I am delighted to announce that Hartford Care’s charity of the year from 1st April 2017 will be The Care Workers Charity.

With nearly 2 million people working in the care industry, the Care Workers Charity was set up in 2009 to provide support to current, former and retired care workers (regardless of role) who may have fallen on hard times.

Our residents and relatives depend on our care home staff to be there for them, and we are proud to be working with the Care Workers Charity to support these staff and help provide a rainy-day fund for our everyday heroes.

We recognise and value the dedication, commitment and love shown by all our staff, and felt that this charity would be a way to shine a light on this as well as to support anyone who may run into hardship." Sean Gavin, Hartford Care CEO
