Support a care worker for £500 every year
The Care Workers Charity is calling upon UK businesses working in the adult social care sector to collectively raise £2.5 million every year for care workers by donating £500 each to support our work – equivalent to supporting one care worker through our support programmes.
Now more than ever, we need businesses who work in adult social care to help us ensure no care worker faces financial hardship alone. Your support will enable our charity to keep our programmes open to care workers across the UK, providing essential hardship funds, mental health support and training, raising awareness and advocacy.
People are our greatest asset in care – without them, it would be impossible to provide the services which enable people who draw on support to live fulfilling and independent lives. Please show your support for care workers by making a regular contribution to The Care Workers’ Charity.
If one out of ten organisations providing and organising care in the UK supported our campaign with an annual donation of £500, we could raise £2.5 million every year and continue our work as the only safety net which exists for care workers in the UK.
To put this into context:
- £385 could replace a care worker’s washing machine so they have clean clothes for work and life.
- £395 could repair the car that a car worker relies on to get to work.
- £500 could provide one care worker with ten tailored mental health therapy to process chronic stress and trauma.
- £1,550 could help a care worker with the financial burden of laying a loved one to rest.
We invite all of our generous donors to spread the word and invite five of their partners and suppliers to join our campaign for care workers.
“This year, we are seeing demand for our crisis grants rise as sharply as they did at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. Therefore we are asking businesses working in adult social care to show their support for this essential workforce who must not be forced into taking on high-cost debt in order to buy the essentials items like bread and milk, fill their car with petrol or pay their rising energy bills.” Karolina Gerlich, CEO, The Care Workers Charity
*Disclaimer: The money raised in this campaign will act as unrestricted funding so that The Care Workers Charity can continue to directly support care workers with grants and contribute towards overall operating costs. This includes administration of funds, campaigning and fundraising, and representing the interests of care workers at a national level.
