Specialist asset manager and investor in the UK healthcare real estate sector, Elevation Advisors LLP, has become a Care Workers’ Charity (CWC) corporate partner.
The move will see the specialist asset manager and investor in the UK healthcare real estate sector support the charity’s fundraising targets over the course of 2021.
Karolina Gerlich, Chief Executive Officer of the CWC, (pictured) said: “The Care Workers’ Charity has been working hard to support our social care heroes, whose need has greatly increased since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Without external support, we would not be able to this, so we are thrilled that Elevation have joined us as a corporate partner.
“We are grateful for the generous funding agreed by Elevation and are excited to have their support in the creation of campaigns for the charity. This partnership represents a collaboration between two organisations whose shared values to support the social care sector will make a hugely positive impact on our work, and into the sector at large. The team and I look forward to working with Elevation over the coming year.”
There are almost 2 million care workers in the UK who care for the most vulnerable members of our society. The CWC supports social care workers by offering grants for individuals who have been affected by COVID-19 or have experienced a crisis within the last year. The CWC has also recently launched mental health counselling to support care workers in a broader sense.
The charity aims to ensure the social care workforce is supported so that the best level of care is given to service users. CWC and Elevation intend to work closely together to create campaigns to raise awareness and engagement so more care workers can be supported.
Andrea Auteri, Managing Partner of Elevation, said: “We have been impressed by the impact that the CWC makes for those on the frontline of social care, particularly over the last year. The CWC’s crisis grants provide vital lifelines for those with unexpected or challenging financial burdens and their work for the sector is inspiring. As investors in social care, we are acutely aware that care workers have played a critical role in maintaining safety and infection control during the pandemic and we are looking forward to giving back to our communities.”
