   The mark of excellent care
   24 hour Live­in care support from Caremark
 It is surprising to think that before 2009 there was no national charity to support care staff. With benevolent funds to support almost every other profession in the UK it was alarming there was nothing to support the 1.5 million people who currently work in care or the many more who have committed large parts of their professional lives to the sector.
In 2009 the Care Workers Charity was set up to support one of the UK’s largest work forces. This year has seen CWC take its first significant step to reaching our vision; no care workers will ever face financial hardship alone.
The Care Workers Charity accepts applications from individuals (or their financial dependents) who have worked directly within the UK care profession. The care profession includes those working or who have worked in: care homes for older people and for younger adults, domiciliary care service, day centres and supported living services. All employee roles in these registered environments including care staff, cleaners, back office, catering and managers could receive our support.
We offer hardship grants of up to £500 to get care workers, and families of, out of a crisis situation. We have recently launched an online information and advice section on our website covering topics care workers are most worried about; money, health and wellbeing.
