The Care Workers Charity
The Care Workers’ Charity’s objective is supporting current and former care workers with one-off crisis grants. With almost 2 million care workers in the UK, contributing to one of the largest workforces, and caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our society. Care workers look after our society’s most vulnerable individuals, often for little reward. They spend their careers assisting others, but when circumstances change, sometimes it is the carers who need some help. We will be donating to their coronavirus care workers emergency fund to provide emergency financial aid to care workers who are self-isolating.

Khalsa Aid is an international NGO that provides humanitarian aid in disaster areas and civil conflict zones around the world. The organisation is based upon the Sikh principle to recognise the entire human race as one. As the international community is gripped by the COVID-19 crisis, there has been unrest and panic buying in most countries.
In the UK this panic buying has resulted in shortages in food banks of essential items. Khalsa Aid international is supporting food banks by replenishing their stocks, and delivering food to frontline NHS workers, so that those vulnerable or unable to buy goods, can still receive some essential items.
Silver Charity was founded to help combat social isolation and loneliness by bringing older people together to engage in fun and interesting creative activities. Due to Coronavirus our monthly craft groups for the elderly have closed down. We are supporting isloated seniors in Lockdown by delivering craft care packages to their homes. We have teamed up with Age UK, Age Concern and The Salvation Army and they are delivering our craft care packages alongside their food parcels. We have delivered over 1800 packs so far throughout the South of England and want to extend it further in the UK. We really believe that our packages make a difference, whether to provide an activity to distract seniors from all this uncertainty or simply a reminder that they are not alone.
Solace Women’s Aid exists to end the harm committed through violence against women and girls.

We will be supporting their #StaySafeAtHome Covid-19 emergency appeal, to help ensure the continuing of their services in a time where self-isolation is likely to result in a peak in domestic violence.
