Join us in spreading cheer to carers this Christmas
We’re launching our Christmas Appeal: Cards for Carers to spread cheer to carers this Festive Season!
We’ve teamed up with The Care Workers’ Charity (CWC) to encourage communities around the UK to share messages of thanks and support for carers in the run up to Christmas with cards for carers. Our Caring Trees have been placed in several locations up and down the country. Each of them is decorated with Christmas cards for people to write on them, leaving messages and words of support for care workers.
Considering the incredible dedication care workers have displayed throughout the pandemic, our Christmas appeal is a way to show carers how appreciated and valued they are by the British public and those who draw on their support.
We will be raising much-needed funds for The Care Workers’ Charity over the course of the campaign. After a tough year of lockdown restrictions, charities have faced significant reductions in income at a time when their services have never been needed more. All the money raised will go towards supporting the millions of care workers across the UK, many of whom spend the holidays looking after our loved ones.
There are lots of ways to get involved and support our campaign this year! You can make a donation to The Care Workers’ Charity using the link at the bottom of this page or visit one of our Caring Tree areas in-person. Our North Yorkshire office and regional partner, Gary Derbyshire, is running a joint initiative with Dementia Forward and local groups in his region. Please visit the to see how you can get involved in the North Yorkshire area.
