Session announcement: Financial wellbeing
Join Karolina Gerlich of the Care Workers’ Charity for advice on managing your budget and making your money stretch, at a time of heightened financial difficulty.
Care workers do crucial and difficult work, looking after people’s loved ones while often struggling on minimum wages. Karolina’s experience as a home care worker herself, followed by years of leading a team helping financially vulnerable care workers, has given her a wealth of knowledge to share.
- Learn how to make the most of your budget at a time of financial difficulty
- Access resources to help with everything from paying for childcare to managing debt and accessing emergency housing
- Workshop how to plan for a healthy financial future
Founded in 2009 to support care workers with one-off crisis grants, the CWC now supports the nearly 2 million care workers in the UK, paying out over £4.5 million in grants to almost 7,000 care workers since 2020.
The CWC will have a stand at the show, where Neil Eastwood of Care Friends will also be signing copies of his book Saving Social Care, the profits of which go to the charity. Head over to say hi to Karolina and her team, and maybe even nab yourself a copy of Neil’s book!
