The Care Workers’ Charity and Home Instead

Home Instead is joining The Care Workers’ Charity (CWC) as a Supporter Member to help raise awareness of the charity’s support services. Their contribution will expand CWC’s reach, ensuring that more care workers in need can receive assistance. 

Home Instead says, “Care workers play a crucial role in the UK and so we’re thrilled to continue to support the Care Workers’ Charity. The work the charity does is incredibly important to support these workers, continuing to build a stronger care workforce. Our own Care Professionals have benefitted directly from the support and I’m sure many more will continue to do so, to help them become the best care workers they can be.” 

Karolina Gerlich, CEO of the CWC, expressed her gratitude, saying, “We are very thankful that Home Instead has chosen to support the CWC by becoming a Supporter Member. Their support demonstrates their appreciation for the remarkable work accomplished in social care and their commitment to the social care workforce.” 

Nearly 2 million care workers in the UK look after the most vulnerable members of our society. The Care Workers’ Charity is a national organisation that provides financial and mental health support to those working in social care in the UK. 

The Care Workers’ Charity strives to ensure the social care workforce receives the necessary support, enabling them to deliver the highest level of care to service users.

About Home Instead: 

Home Instead UK is a national home care company which specialises in providing care and companionship in the home for older people. It also delivers specialist dementia care, Parkinson’s care, end-of-life, live-in care and respite care. 

Home Instead was brought to the UK in 2005. 19 years on, it has 255 offices caring for over 16,000 clients. It provides around six million hours of relationship-led home care each year. 

In August 2021 Home Instead was acquired by Honor (a technology provider), bringing together the largest home care network and the leading care technology platform to pioneer new innovations in the care sector and ultimately expand the world’s capacity to care.   

Its 10,000 Care Professionals sit at the heart of the business and are matched to clients based on shared interests and hobbies. They’re given time to care for clients with minimum visits of an hour and have access to a range of benefits to support their wellbeing – including healthcare, counselling and financial resources. 

Care Professionals have the opportunity to follow a career pathway if they choose and access professionally accredited training. This includes specialist training in dementia awareness and end of life care, both of which are City & Guilds assured. They can also receive training from Barclays Digital Eagles to help instil digital confidence amongst older people. 

Home Instead is the only home care provider to be awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise. 

Home Instead was the first home care provider to receive an inaugural Princess Royal Training Award, which demonstrates outstanding training and skills development programmes. 

Home Instead has been rated ‘outstanding’ by the Care Quality Commission in over a third of offices in England, with offices in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland exceeding their regulatory requirements. (Home Instead UK)
