Care Workers Charity Partnership

We are extremely pleased to announce our latest charity partnership – we are now Supportive Members of the Care Workers Charity! This is the only national charity that aims to specifically support healthcare workers.

This is an amazing step forward for the business and supporting all of our staff members even further, especially alongside our employee assistance programme. This charity offers a range of support to health care workers regarding finances, illness/injury, change in living circumstance and much more. We believe this will be an incredibly useful tool for our colleagues to utilise going forward for extra support.

So, what do the Care Workers Charity do?

CWC offers support to health and social care workers when there has been a change in circumstances in the last year that has had a significant financial impact:

  • A sudden or unexpected loss of income
  • A sudden or unexpected illness or injury
  • A sudden or unexpected change in living circumstances or loss of home
  • A relationship breakdown
  • An issue of domestic abuse
  • Death of a close relative

Grants can cover (but not exclusive to):

  • Daily living expenses
  • Essential whitegoods
  • Essential household items
  • Moving costs
  • Health improvement aids and adaptations
  • Travel expenses to hospital
  • Essential household repairs
  • Car repairs
  • Funeral costs
  • Bankruptcy and Debt Relief Order (DRO) application fee
  • Fees to prevent eviction

Do they offer support with mental health and wellbeing?

Yes! The Care Workers Charity provide a range of support regarding mental health and wellbeing.

Depending on your situation regarding your mental health, The Care Workers Charity offer up to 10 sessions with a qualified therapist, which is paid directly by the CWC. These therapy sessions can help you with common mental health conditions such as depression, anxiety, PTSD, stress and addiction.

In order to apply for up to 10 therapy sessions with The Care Workers Charity you would need the following evidence: either with self-referral (by providing a brief description of what area of mental health you need additional help with, and how the therapy sessions will benefit you) or a letter of support, and employment evidence from your employer. This is just to confirm that you are employed within the care sector. You can obtain a letter of support from either your GP, social worker, CPN, or another regulated professional.

How will MerseyCare Julie Ann help with my application?

Should you apply for a crisis grant, mental health support, therapy sessions, or any other support provided by the Care Workers Charity that requires an application, we will help support you by advising you on the services that are available to you, as well as provide evidence for your employment in the care sector.

So, what does this charity partnership mean?

As part of the Clece Care Services group, we are now Supportive Members of The Care Workers Charity. This means that we are able to support our staff even further regarding their financial situations and mental health.

Here at Mersey Care Julie Ann, we believe it is extremely important that we are supporting our staff members in everything that they do, especially outside the work place. The wellbeing of our staff members is of our upmost importance, so alongside our employee assistance programme with Health Assured, this charity partnership will allow us to support our colleagues even further.
