Launched in 2013, The Care Worker’s Charity provides support to anyone who works in the care sector who’s facing financial hardship. There are nearly 1.5 million care workers in the UK, contributing to one of largest workforces, and caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
Early starts, long hours and mentally draining work are part and parcel of the job. As a result, it’s all too easy for illness, or other unforeseen circumstances, to push them beyond their financial limits.
A hardship grant can help cover financial loss caused by sudden illness or injury, a death in the family or a relationship breakdown.
Agincare have pledged to raise £6,500 in 2019 for The Care Worker’s Charity through a variety of fundraising efforts from cake sales to sponsored walks.
