Global’s Make Some Noise supports charities like The Care Workers Charity, which is providing financial support to care workers in need due to coronavirus.
There are almost 2 million care workers in the UK, contributing to one of the largest workforces. They spend their careers assisting others, but when circumstances change, sometimes it is the care workers who need help.
Times like now. Care workers are at the frontline of this crisis, caring for the most vulnerable people in our communities. For care workers who are shielding, self-isolating, or are unable to work due to contracting coronavirus, they have fallen into desperate need for financial help.
These are people doing some of the most valuable work in society, but they are some of the lowest paid workers in the country. Many who are self-isolating receive at best statutory sick pay, others none. Some are going into debt and others are going hungry.
The Care Workers Charity helps heroes like Lewis.
The Care Workers Charity is providing emergency financial support to care workers who are self-isolating.
The charity is providing crisis grants to people who have worked in a paid role in the UK’s care sector and are involved in or support the provision of care – this includes people who have been involved in residential social care, home care, supported living care or day care.
You can help. Make Some Noise provides funding to small charities that are working tirelessly in their communities. These workers are on the frontline providing food, warmth, shelter, care and vital support. Give a little today to help those hit hardest by coronavirus.
