To raise funds to invest in PPE for those working in the care sector. A first step towards the foundation of a charity to support carers

by Hayley Price-Trott in Newport, England, United Kingdom

I have chosen to try to help carers, both in the community and in residential care settings. As someone with a disability, which affects me daily, and my mum has worked in social care, I have seen both sides. I want to help protect key workers both during the pandemic and the future. This fundraiser is the first stage in a far larger project. I am currently looking to form a charity which will support care professionals, whether that be through the supply of PPE, food parcels, or even assistance in finding counselling, legal advice or other services. Our carers are overworked, often under-appreciated by their employers and underpaid, but for those of us that rely on them, highly appreciated. They care for us, they care for your loved ones. Maybe one day you yourself will need to rely on them! I hope you will consider doing your bit to protect the country.
