The Care Workers Charity supports the basic welfare of current, former and retired care workers through hardship grants.
There are nearly two million care workers in the UK, contributing to one of Britain's largest workforces and caring for some of the most vulnerable in society.
For Britain's care workers, early starts, long hours and mentally draining work is part and parcel of the job. As a result, it is all too easy for illness or other unforeseen circumstances to push them beyond their financial limits.
In recognition of this dedicated and selfless workforce, The Care Workers Charity was founded in 2009.
As a country, people depend on care workers to be there on a rainy day. The Care Workers Charity is there for them on theirs.
