Jeremy joined The Care Workers Charity after spending three years working in Residential Care with Avery Healthcare, Signature and Bupa. Having witnessed the extremely rewarding, but equally stressful work that many of our frontline care workers do, he wanted to become a part of an organisation that was giving something back to those who make those brave sacrifices on a daily basis, for very little in return.
As Grants Administrator, Jeremy contacts everyone who submits an application for a CWC Grant and will help guide them through the grant application process. He will liaise with Applicants and Third Parties to gather the evidence required before processing everything into a presentation for the charity’s board of Trustees to make the final decision upon.

Through her work and volunteering at organisations including Macmillan Cancer Support, Social Investment Business, and The Sierra Club Foundation, Jessica has promoted health, environmental, and educational causes.
Jessica is excited to join the team at CWC and to become a thorough advocate for care workers across the UK.
