Karolina Gerlich, CEO of The Care Workers’ Charity
The Care Workers’ Charity (CWC) is pleased to announce that we have partnered with The Outstanding Society.The CWC is a benevolent fund for the social care sector which has over a decade of experience in giving financial grants to prevent care workers from falling into financial hardship. In providing these grants we know we change lives, providing a safety net for care workers who have nowhere else to turn. Most recently, mental health support was introduced- providing free counselling through Red Umbrella, to address the trauma experienced by the social care workforce.
The Outstanding Society (CIC) is a free membership body for all care providers, and promotes the sharing of best practice within adult social care throughout England- providing free resources throughout the sector to support them to achieve an outstanding CQC rating. Outstanding providers are contributors to the Society and are proud to celebrate what they do in Social Care.
This drive to facilitate best practice and increase care quality for those who draw on social care is shared by The Care Workers’ Charity- in the belief that the sector will greatly benefit from shared best practice, alongside the professionalisation and proper recognition of the social care workforce.
Karolina Gerlich, CEO of The Care Workers’ Charity says: “We are thrilled to be working with The
Outstanding Society to raise awareness of the work and impact of the CWC amongst the social care sector and its workforce. This partnership represents a collaboration between two organisations whose shared values to support and better the sector will make a hugely positive impact on our work, and into the sector at large. Myself, and the Team, look forward to working with them.”
Zoe Fry and Russell Leese, Directors of the Outstanding Society (CIC) say: “We feel privileged to be working with The Care Workers’ Charity. The work that the Charity has done over the years to help our profession through difficult times is remarkable and we know the profession will need their support more than ever over the coming months and years. We are delighted that
we, along with our members will be able to work alongside the CWC to support the excellent work they do.”
