We are thrilled to announce we have been awarded the ‘Scaling Up’ award by UnLtd, a fund to support social entrepreneurs.
The highly competitive award comes with a year’s worth of funding as well as
business support and mentoring.
We have worked so hard to get here because we really believe in what we are doing and have seen the incredible impact that coaching can have on the lives of unpaid carers. This is an amazing opportunity for us to grow our business and expand our reach, and we are really grateful to UnLtd for their support and their belief in us.
According to the latest census data, there are a total of five million people – including children as young as five – who provide unpaid care to people with long-term health conditions or other problems in Wales and England. This number is set to increase as the social care system buckles under the weight of rising demand and lack of resources. Which is why carer support is more important now than ever. We believe that with the right support unpaid carers can find healthier, happier and more sustainable ways to look after their loved ones, without having to give up the things most important to them. We are really excited to see where this year of investment and growth can take us.
