The Care Workers Charity. How we are involved to support our Care Workers.
The Care Workers Charity was set up in 2009 to support current and former care workers with one-off crisis grants and to fulfil a vision of a UK, where no care worker should face financial hardship alone.
Recognising the continuous dedication and passion for care shown by our Majesticare teams, we, as an organisation have been contributing to the CWC every month and we’ve also been fundraising to ensure that should circumstances change, you can apply for financial help.
So, how does it work?
The Care Workers charity, provides crisis grants to people have worked in a paid role in the UK’s care sector and are involved in or support the provision of care.
They offer two types of grants, typically limited to £500:
Essential needs grants
One-off payment towards the cost of an item or a need necessary to sustain the basic health, or to improve poor quality of life of the person or family – for example, essential appliances, keeping a home warm, essential household requirements or health improvement aids.
One-off payment to support someone experiencing an unforeseen or life-changing circumstance, such as bereavement, illness or injury and who has no resources to meet associated costs which could include funeral expenses, moving home, travel to hospital expenses, home repairs.
