NEW PARTNERSHIP FORMED TO SUPPORT DOMICILIARY CARE WORKERS

The Care Workers’ Charity has partnered with Care Worker Tax Rebate to raise awareness to domiciliary care workers that they may be eligible to reclaim tax.

The Care Workers’ Charity has partnered with Care Worker Tax Rebate to raise awareness to domiciliary care workers that they may be eligible to reclaim tax. 

The Care Workers’ Charity was set up to support care workers and to advocate for the social care workforce.

Care Worker Tax Rebate was formed in 2012 to help the hundreds of thousands of employed domiciliary carers in Great Britain who are needlessly paying too much income tax to HM Revenue & Customs. Since forming eight years ago, the organisation has refunded £15 million to domiciliary care workers. 

There are almost two million care workers in the UK who care for the most vulnerable members of our society. For many domiciliary care workers, driving between the homes of clients is part of the job. It is for this reason that domiciliary care workers may be eligible for a tax rebate. On average claims are worth around £1,200. 

The Care Workers’ Charity aims to ensure the social care workforce is supported so that the best level of care is given to service users. This vision is shared by Care Worker Tax Rebate. The two organisations will work closely together to create campaigns to raise awareness and engagement so more care workers can be supported. Both organisations will signpost applicants where relevant, to ensure individuals are supported in the best way possible. 

Karolina Gerlich, Executive Director of The Care Workers’ Charity, said: “We are happy to be working with Care Worker Tax Rebate, the partnership is a natural fit as we are both helping care workers and doing so in different ways which can only be a good thing. Now, more than ever care workers must be valued and respected. If the social care workforce is appreciated, everyone benefits from service users to family and friends.”

Conrad Edwards, Operations Director of Care Worker Tax Rebate, said: “Care workers have been on the front line during the COVID-19 pandemic and need everyone’s support. We are proud to agree a partnership with The Care Worker Charity which allows our business to put something back into the care worker community. The Care Worker Tax Rebate team speaks with over 2,000 care workers each week and, for some time, we have been signposting the support available from The Care Worker Charity to our clients. Becoming a partner with the charity was a logical next step.”
