Bluebird Care Thurrock and Castle Point forms new partnership with national Care Workers Charity
BLUEBIRD Care Thurrock and Castle Point is delighted to be working with the Care Workers Charity, in a brand-new partnership set to benefit Bluebird Care’s hardworking team of employees in the local area.
The Care Workers Charity launched in 2013 as a non-profit organisation dedicated to providing a ‘rainy day fund’ for the UK’s more than 1.5 million care workers. Before them, there was no national charity set up to support care staff. Working to help current, former or retired care workers who may face financial limits, the charity aims to ensure that no care worker will ever face financial hardship alone.
The organisation is proud to award hardship grants of up to £500 to support unexpected and unforeseen circumstances. This might include sudden unexpected illness or injury, loss of home or relationship break-downs.
Director of Bluebird Care Thurrock and Castle Point, Alvin Osei-Tutu, said:
“We’re delighted to be working with the Care Workers Charity, who provide support for carers right across the country.
Our staff always go beyond the call of duty to make sure the people we look after across Thurrock & Castle Point are well looked after and supported in their own homes.
The services provided by the charity will give Bluebird care assistants an even greater reason to feel valued in the workplace.”
The Care Workers Charity also offers online information and advice on a range of health and wellbeing topics. Any ‘everyday hero,’ – anyone in any role employed within a registered provider such as Bluebird Care – is eligible, including care staff, cleaners, office staff, caterers and managers. The charity is backed by a strong board of trustees with some of the biggest names in the care sector.
Bluebird Care Thurrock & Castle Point understands that working in care comes with a range of challenges and wants to further reward its dedicated employees who put person-centred services and care at the heart of everything they do.
Bluebird Care employees will have direct access to these services and new benefits initiated by the partnership. Thanks to the partnership, every employee will be able to apply for grants that would help support if unexpected circumstances or life events occur – for example illnesses, changes in living circumstances, relationship breakdowns, or family bereavements.
Bluebird Care is a national provider of care in the home, specialising in working with customers who live with dementia, physical disabilities and many other acute and chronic conditions. Bluebird Care work alongside their customers’ families, social services and the NHS to ensure each person receives the care they need.
