Kaido has joined forces with The Care Workers Charity to provide wellbeing support to UK’s care workers.
Kaido, a leading provider of employee wellbeing programmes has teamed up with The Care Workers Charity to launch a dedicated wellbeing initiative designed to support the UK’s care workers.
Care workers have been at the forefront of the recent Coronavirus pandemic, with a recent report sharing how as many as 4 in 10 workers are now struggling with their mental health as a result.
The ‘Going the Extra Mile Event’ is a team-based Wellbeing Challenge specifically designed to drive engagement, boost morale and improve connectivity between care workers, whilst also supporting them to look after their physical and mental health in a fun and interactive way.
Alongside taking part in the challenge, participants are raising funds for The Care Workers Charity. An organisation that exists to provide vital financial support to current and former care workers.
There are over 2 million care workers in the UK that spend their careers assisting others, but when circumstances change, sometimes it's the carers who need help. The Care Workers Charity exists to provide this important support.
Commenting on the launch, Rich Westman, CEO at Kaido said:
Over the last 4 months we have seen first hand the incredible job that the UK’s healthcare workers have done under extraordinary circumstances. Care Workers are the unsung heroes. When The Care Workers Charity approached us to support their ‘Going to Extra Mile Event’ it was something that the whole Kaido team wanted to do as a way of saying thank you.
Emily Barnett, Partnership and Events Manager at The Care Workers Charity added:
People working in social care do an amazing job caring for the most vulnerable people in society in extremely difficult circumstances, however, they do not always receive the same level of personal wellbeing support that other health care workers do. This initiative is designed to change that whilst also providing a welcome morale and motivation boost.
