Social Care TV Announced as Leaders in Care Awards Finalist!
The shortlist for the Leaders in Care Awards 2023 has been published and Social Care TV are delighted to have been announced as a finalist in the Business Services category.
Social Care TV has been in direct contact with care workers, care home managers, agencies and all those involved in health & social care for twenty-five years. We have heard countless stories of care workers going above and beyond their expected duties, heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure, and have always been acutely aware of the critical work completed by care workers, often with very little recognition or reward.
In 2022, we launched our ‘Care Worker of the Month’ award, to give back in some small way. We could never have predicted the response.
The simple act of recognition has had a profound effect on our 15 winners thus far and we are delighted to have highlighted their inspirational acts of kindness and selflessness.
We have decided to continue running CWOTM indefinitely and we are very pleased to do so.
However, we also decided that we needed to do more and, in late 2022 began investigating other ways of supporting or recognising care workers.
We had been aware of The Care Workers’ Charity for some time and the wonderful work they do. Their mission is to advance the financial, professional and mental wellbeing of social care workers by making grants, signposting to resources and providing access to services. They believe that no care worker should face financial hardship alone.
Sponsoring The Care Workers’ Charity seemed the perfect way for Social Care TV to help further.
The Care Workers' Charity (CWC) was founded in 2009 to support current and former care workers with one-off crisis grants.
Since 2020 they have paid over £5 million in Grants to over 9,000 care workers in need. They support the almost 2 million care workers in the UK, contributing to one of the largest workforces.
Care workers face daily challenges, such as: inconsistent hours, loss of income, low recruitment and retention consequences and lack of adequate resources to help care workers do their job to the best of their ability.
With this in mind, The Care Workers’ Charity also provide a mental wellbeing and health support offering. Their programme offers applicants a series of up to ten support sessions with a qualified therapist.
The Care Workers’ Charity is relied upon by many thousands, and supporting CWC to continue their work is vital. Social Care TV are proud to support this incredible charity.
