We know this changes lives – every month the people we help tell us how a CWC grant has enabled them to face the future with renewed hope.
While financial help can be all that is needed in some cases, we also recognise that many issues faced by individuals working in care cannot be fixed by grants alone. We are working with care workers and care providers to tackle these issues, creating the support structures that people need whilst actively promoting the immense contribution that care workers make to our society.
