The Care Tech Foundation, the care sector’s first independent grant-making corporate charitable foundation, has announced significant grants and support for its strategic partners, Barnardo’s, British Asian Trust and Skills for Care.
The announcement was made at the Houses of Parliament during an event hosted by Seema Malhotra MP.
Haroon Sheikh, Chairman of the Foundation, and Jonathan Freeman, CEO, said: “Partnering with these three high-profile and sector-leading charities underlines our commitment to supporting people with a diverse range of needs.
“Through partners like these, the CareTech Foundation is able to provide much-needed support to vulnerable people across the UK and overseas. We are very excited about working with Barnardo’s, the British Asian Trust and Skills for Care and helping them to deliver these very important projects.”
The CareTech Foundation was founded by CareTech Holdings plc, a leading provider of social care services, supporting adults and children with a wide range of complex needs in more than 260 specialist services across the UK.
Skills for Care CEO, Sharon Allen OBE, said: “If we want to fill the 90,000 vacancies adult social care has every day we must work harder and smarter to reach more potential recruits from traditionally under-represented groups.
“That’s why I’m delighted to welcome the Care Tech Foundation’s support for our work to reach those people with the right values who are furthest from the jobs market. Its generous commitment will help the social care and health sector find great talent in new places and create a diverse workforce that represents the communities it serves.”
