The Care Workers Charity

The Care Workers’ Charity was founded in 2009 with the objective of supporting current and former care workers with one-off crisis grants. In 2018 they awarded over £150,000 in grants to almost 400 care workers – nearly four times as many people as in 2017. In 2019 they expect to award even more.

We know this changes lives – every month the people they help tell them how their grant has enabled them to face the future with renewed hope. Their efforts were recognised at the 2018 Charity Times Awards –  we were the ‘Change Project of the Year’ nomination winner and at the Third Sector Awards, where we were shortlisted in the ‘Charity Chief Executive’ category.

While financial help can be all that is needed in some cases, they recognise that many issues faced by the individuals working in care cannot be fixed by grants alone. Throughout 2019 and beyond, they will work with care workers and care providers to tackle these issues, aiming to create the support structures that people need whilst actively promoting the immense contribution that the UK’s care workers make to their society.

We’re welcoming new residents

The health, safety, and wellbeing of our residents, patients and staff is always our top priority as we continue to celebrate life across all of our care homes.

Our homes are vaccinated against Covid-19 and if not already done, we will facilitate your vaccine when you move in.

We are currently welcoming new residents, for both short-and long-term placements.

Visiting a loved one?

Residents are allowed five named visitors with a maximum of two visitors at any one time. All visits must be arranged or booked in advance with the home to avoid disappointment.

During each visit, the visitor must wear PPE, minimise physical contact, as well as follow all other infection control measures, such as social distancing.

Visitors will be tested for COVID-19 using the rapid lateral flow tests before entering the home at each visit.

Visitors should observe strict social distancing from other residents, visitors and staff

If you have any questions, we’re happy to answer them prior to your arrival.
