Geraint Davies, MP for Swansea West has given his support to a new fundraiser to support care workers who have been affected by Coronavirus.

The fund has been setup by the Care Workers’ Charity, and is being supported by More United, a cross-party network of MPs. The fund will give grants to those on the front line of the care service in the event that they have to self-isolate.

The fund has so far raised more than £100,000 and has been supported by more than 60 MPs from across eight political parties.

Geraint Davies said: “This is a fantastic initiative by the Care Workers Charity and More United that deserves our support. Our care workers in Swansea West form a vital pillar in our society and are at the forefront of the efforts to fight COVID-19.

“COVID-19 is the largest public health crises we have seen for a hundred years, with care workers right on the frontline of it, caring for those most vulnerable to the virus. If a care worker needs to self-isolate, they will fall into desperate need.

“We must make sure that any care worker who has to self-isolate will be supported through any financial hardship they may suffer.”

Tabitha Morton, Chief Executive of More United said: “These are challenging times for everyone, but the way that people have come together in a time of crisis is amazing. We saw as a nation how we value the incredible work carers deliver everyday with #ClapforCarers, and this new fund allows people to show that they #Care4Carers and make sure that if a care worker needs financial support then they will get it.”
