Staff Hardship Fund

Providing small grants to CareTech staff and those who may recently have left the company who find themselves in significant financial hardship or in, or at, serious risk of becoming in significant financial hardship.

What We Do

The Staff Hardship Fund is for CareTech staff and for those who have recently left the company. It is for those who are struggling to cope financially and are in, or at risk, of serious financial hardship.  It is not a loan that needs to be repaid nor does it count as an advance on your wages. It is to make day-to-day living more affordable and/or to cover unexpected costs.

Restricted donation

We receive a restricted donation from CareTech to enable us to provide small grants to CareTech staff.

Who we help

The grants are open to those who may have recently left the company, who find themselves in, or at risk of, significant financial hardship.

Grant awards

Grants will be awarded in Pound sterling for members applying form CareTech sites outside the UK.
