Does your company care?
Every year, 6,000,000 men, women and children care for a sick or disabled member of their family or friend, of these carers 3,000,000 are combining caring with working so it is very likely that some of your colleagues are amongst the 3 million working carers in the UK. How would you cope if :
Few of us plan to become carers, so when a caring role starts, every carer needs an expert to guide them through the maze of services, rules and entitlements. For a carer this can make the difference between staying healthy and collapsing under the stress or between keeping and losing their job.
There are many ways that your company can make a lasting impact to the work of Carers Trust and to carers in the UK. Working in partnership with Carers Trust can provide rewarding possibilities for both your company and employees.
We highly recommend our supporters to donate unrestricted funding - by making your financial support unrestricted it becomes far more powerful and far reaching, allowing us to respond to areas of most need immediately.
Whilst funding is always required, there are many ways that companies can assist with our work. Further details of these are given below:
Benefits of working with The Trust
Richard Bates, Managing Director of Butlins, explains why he wanted to get involved in a relationship with The Trust:
"The moment I read about the role so many ordinary people have to take on as an unpaid carer, particularly the children who dedicate their childhood to looking after adults, I knew I wanted Butlins to get involved in as many ways as possible. Butlins is family focused and so is The Trust in that they work to keep families together so we’re viewing this as a long term partnership and our guests both support and enjoy the Resort activities, which are many, varied and great fun, to raise funds for The Trust".
