Care Workers Charity - ‘Going the extra mile’
On Monday 30 July Avante Care & Support’s Home Care team supported the Care Workers Charity’s national day, ‘Going the extra mile’ to celebrate those care workers and care teams that go the extra mile every day.
The Care Workers Charity says, ‘There are over 1.5 million care workers in the UK, contributing to one of Britain's largest workforces, and caring for some of the most vulnerable people in our society.
The Care Workers Charity is here to help current, former and retired workers on their rainy day.
Avante Care & Supports Home Care team delivers care into the community across Kent and Bexley. The care teams planned two walks, one in Bexley and the other in Sittingbourne, Kent and invited staff and service users to join in and walk a mile for the care workers charity.
Angela Johnson, Head of Home Care and Support said, ‘Every day I am privileged to see the Avante Care & Support home care teams going the extra mile to deliver quality person centred services. The CWC walk is a perfect example of how our home care team are working towards our vision, creating communities where everyone has a vibrant and fulfilling life.
Encouraging service users to take part in activities and days out to feel part of the community. It was great to see so many of the team and the community involved in this event to celebrate the valuable role of the care workforce, raise the profile of the magnificent work undertaken by the sector every single day and to raise valuable funds for the charity.
I would like to thank everyone who took part on the day and for the dedication and commitment shown by the care team the whole year through. We raised £143 on the day which will go to the CWC rainy day fund’.
