The National Activity Providers Association and the Care Workers Charity are partnering for a special fundraising campaign during Care Home Open Week 2023.
Care Home Open Week, which runs between 26 June and 2nd July, is an annual event which celebrated the valuable contributions of care homes and promotes transparency, understanding, and engagement within the care sector. NAPA and CWC have seized this opportunity to launch a joint fundraising campaign to harness the spirit of unity and compassion that defines the care community.
Hilary Woodhead, NAPA's executive director, said: "This fundraising partnership between NAPA and CWC is of utmost importance to us. It not only helps care workers and activity providers during times of hardship but also enables older people to defy ageist stereotypes and pursue their dreams and ambitions. By coming together during Care Home Open Week, we can create a positive impact and champion the wellbeing of residents and care and activity teams alike."
CWC CEO Karolina Gerlich commented: "We are very excited to come together with NAPA for this fundraising campaign during Care Home Open Week. Care Workers work in partnership with activities providers every day, so it makes perfect sense for them to come together and raise funds for colleagues that need support, especially in the cost-of-living crisis and hopefully in fun ways that include residents and their families and friends. Care Home Open Week is such a great initiative run by Championing Social Care and a great way to bring people together and we hope that it will help people rally behind the workforce that works tirelessly to deliver outstanding care all the time.”
