Greensleeves Care supports the Care Workers Charity

Not-for-profit provider Greensleeves Care is the latest organisation to join the Care Workers Charity Supporter’s Club, which provides vital support to care workers who experience hardship.

The Care Workers Charity supports the welfare needs of current, former and retired care sector workers. Paul Newman, chief executive of Greensleeves Care, said the company was delighted to support such an important cause.

“Our colleagues are the frontline and at the heart of Greensleeves Care,” said Mr Newman. “It is vital for us to ensure that they have somewhere to turn when they experience financial difficulty beyond their control.”

Alex Ramamurthy, chief executive of the Care Workers Charity said that, while care workers spend their careers looking after others, but when circumstances change, sometimes it’s the carers who need the help.

“That’s where the CWC steps in,” said Mr Ramamurthy. “We deliver hardship grants to care workers who find themselves in crisis. “The Supporters Club was established this year to get closer to the staff that we support, and provide the charity with a sustainable income stream for grant giving.

“It’s great to have Greensleeves Care show their commitment to the care community by joining the CWC Supporters Club. We’re very pleased to welcome them on board!”
