Care Workers Charity launches child care grant
14 August, 2020
Care workers can now apply to the Care Workers Charity for a child care costs grant (including retrospectively, from 23rd Mar 2020) which will offer support up to £2,000.
Grants are now available towards child care costs for children up to five years – for up to £125 per week. Also, an applicant can apply for child care costs for a childminder for six to twelve-year olds during term time – for up to £70 per week and holiday child care costs – for up to £150 per week.
Care Workers’ Charity executive director Karolina Gerlich said the new grant would be a lifeline to so many care workers who have struggled to juggle the demands of their work and families.
“We are hoping this new support will go some way to help make up for the considerable sacrifices many care workers have made, and all at their own cost,” said Ms Gerlich.
As part of the application process the usual compulsory evidence requirements are in place. You can now apply for child care costs for up to £2000 here.
