Fulcrum Care have joined The Care Worker’s Charity (CWC) as a bronze sponsor.
In their commitment to the national charity, Fulcrum will help to support current and former care workers with financial grants, mental health support and access to vital services during economic hardships.
Founded in 2019, the CWC was set up to provide crisis grants during the hardships of the pandemic.
Fulcrum’s values are very much aligned with the charity’s mission, having developed and grown across this same period by working tirelessly alongside struggling care homes and protecting them from closure.
Since 2020, the CWC has supported over 6,166 care workers across the UK with a total of £3.86 million in Crisis, Covid-19, Funeral and Mental Wellbeing and Health Grants.
Tony Thiru, CEO of Fulcrum Care, said: “As care sector consultants, we are in constant contact with the care workers and care home managers who are on the frontline of the challenges faced by social care. Becoming a sponsor of the initiative is just one of the ways that we hope to continue helping those in need within the sector and create a better environment for our key workers.”
Karolina Gerlich, CEO of The Care Workers’ Charity said: “We are very grateful that Fulcrum has decided to support our initiative. Working in social care is a rewarding role, however it comes with its challenges. The CWC is a safety net for care workers and their families who are struggling and might not have the means to support themselves.”
