Karolina Gerlich, Chief Executive Officer of The Care Workers’ Charity, said, ‘We’re really pleased to share our journey over the past 12 months. We have continued to support social care workers in crisis with crisis grants and covid-19 Emergency Grants and we have also added Mental Wellbeing and Health support in association with Red Umbrella providing care workers with up to ten support sessions with a qualified therapist and provided for 40 social care staff to undertake accredited Mental Health First Aider Training in order for them to be able to support their colleagues. The need for our support is as great as ever post covid and we are so grateful to our sponsors, supporter members and fundraisers for helping us to help those in need.’
The Care Workers’ Charity would like to thank all our Trustees, sponsors, funders, partners, and donors and said, ‘Without this vital support we would not be able to provide support to care workers during their time of greatest need. Thank you.’
