Hallmark Care Homes helps boost young carers with funding partnership

The Hallmark Care Homes Foundation has joined forces with the CareTech Charitable Foundation and The Open University (OU) to give a boost to unpaid young carers.

The partnership is funding the Carers Scholarships Fund providing free OU education and wraparound careers support.

The Hallmark Care Homes Foundation has donated £20,000 and The CareTech Foundation £39,996 to finance 50 undergraduate and postgraduate full fee-waiver scholarships.

The first recipients began their studies in October.

Avnish Goyal, chair of the Hallmark Care Homes Foundation, said the initiative will have a positive impact on young carers‘ lives.
