HALLMARK CARE HOMES FOUNDATION BACKS THE CARE WORKERS’ CHARITY

The Care Workers’ Charity (CWC) has announced that the board of Hallmark Care Homes Foundation, chaired by Avnish Goyal, has agreed to donate £78,000 over the next three years as part of their continued commitment to the charity.

This vital donation will fund the role of a Mental Health Grants Admin Worker, who will be dedicated to the organisation and processing of applications to the charity’s Mental Health and Support Programme. Such longer term core funding plays a key part in helping CWC sustain and develop its charity support programmes for the hardworking social care workforce, particularly at this very stressful time. 

Karolina Gerlich, Chief Executive Officer of The Care Workers’ Charity said: “The Care Workers’ Charity has been working hard to support our social care heroes, whose need has greatly increased since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Without external support, we would not be able to do this, so we are extremely grateful for the generous funding agreed by Hallmark Care Homes Foundation, which represents a continued collaboration between our two organisations, and whose shared values to support the social care sector will make a hugely positive impact on our work and the sector at large.”

The funding for CWC’s Mental Health and Support Programme will help promote and deliver the service which includes up to 10 counselling sessions and bespoke support to more care workers over the next three years.

Chair of Hallmark Care Homes Foundation Avnish Goyal said: “Care workers have been at the forefront of tackling the pandemic over the last 16 months. The stress and added demands have inevitably come with a huge toll on mental health. Our support for the Care Workers’ Charity will enable more care workers to get the mental health support they need in a timely and appropriate way. The charity continues to do fantastic work to support this vital workforce.”
