The Care Workers Charity
Posted: 11 January 2019
There are over 1.5 million care workers in the UK, contributing to one of Britain's largest workforces, and caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
For Britain's care workers, 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.
The good people of the care sector make a massive contribution to our everyday lives. The Care Workers Charity is here to help current, former and retired workers on their rainy day.
Why do we exist?
Carers look after society’s most vulnerable individuals, often for little reward. They spend their careers assisting others, but when circumstances change, sometimes it the carers who need some help.
No care worker will ever face financial hardship alone.
