Posted on Friday 18th August
Caring Homes Group is delighted to announce support for the Care Workers Charity and membership of the charity’s Supporters Club.
The new partnership was announced recently at the Caring Homes Group conference and recognition awards, held to celebrate the best in care and support across the group.
During the event Alex Ramamurthy, CEO of the Care Workers Charity was welcomed to the stage to talk about the charity and its work. Attended by over 340 guests the evening was a great occasion, with colleagues and business partners coming together to celebrate. More than £2,000 was raised at the event through a charity raffle and a cheque presentation for more than £17,000 made by Caring Homes Founding Director Helena Jeffery and the evening’s host singer Ronan Keating.
Caring Homes Group is made up of Caring Homes (elderly) and Consensus (specialist care). The Colchester based company employs more than 5,500 people across the group and has celebrated more than 23 years of providing high quality private care.
Paul Jeffery, CEO, Caring Homes Group stated; “I am delighted that Caring Homes Group has pledged to support the Care Workers Charity as the work which the charity does in supporting current, former and retired care workers is invaluable in the sector.
“The people our colleagues support on a daily basis rely on them to be there and it is reassuring to know that the Care Workers Charity exists to provide help for care workers who may need it.”
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 people in our society. Early starts, long hours, mentally draining work, it’s all part of the job. But add an injury, illness or other unforeseen circumstance and all too easily things can take their toll, and people can be pushed beyond their financial limits.
