New benevolent fund will help care professionals in times of hardship

Posted on November 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

A charity is being launched to help people in the long term care sector who have fallen on hard times.

Guy Bosanko, a director at property agents Christie + Co, who first came up with the idea for the charity, said that, having spoken to a number of people in the independent care sector, he had been very surprised to find that there was no charity which supported professionals who had run into financial difficulties through no fault of their own.

‘In other sectors, for example the hospitality sector, there are benevolent funds which support such people and which are generously funded by companies as well as individuals,’ said Mr Bosanko. The charity will be called the Care Professionals Benevolent Fund and Davina Ludlow, managing director of the A-Z Care Homes Guide, Avnish Goyal, managing director of Hallmark Healthcare, Martin Green, chief executive of, ECCA and Dr Richard Hawkins, editor-in-chief of Caring Times have been recruited as trustees.
