NACAS has joined forces with the Care Workers Charity to work together to become a powerful voice for care workers in the social care sector.
Founded in 2009, the objective of the Care Workers Charity was to support current and former care workers with one off crisis grants . IN 2018 they awarded over £150, 000 in grants to almost 400 care workers.
In March 2020 our former CEO Karolina Gerlich joined Care Workers Charity to become its new executive director. Karolina's remit is to lead the CWC in developing work on policy and campaigning, including research and the Professional Care Workers Day. We at NACAS are delighted to be able to continue working with Karolina in these very important areas.

Many of us may need the help of a care worker at some point in our lives, now it s our turn to help them.
