All profits from the sale of CARE badges will be distributed to care-related causes and charities, suggested online by care workers and carers and overseen by a CARE badge committee.

The CARE Badge CIC (Community Interest Company) is administered and managed for free by everyLIFE Technologies. Costs incurred are limited to the cost of badges, badge packaging and postage.

The CARE Badge CIC is a Community Interest Company formed jointly by everyLIFE Technologies and Care England and latterly the National Care Forum with the sole purpose of providing the CARE badge to companies, charities and other organisations.

Care England, a registered charity, is the leading representative body for independent care services in England. Working on behalf of small, medium and large providers, Care England speaks with a single unified voice for both members and the whole care sector.

everyLIFE Technologies provides a suite of care-planning software and apps, including the PASSsystem and openPASS, to the UK’s homecare, reablement and residential care sectors. everyLIFE is focused on serving the care sector and believes passionately in partnering with others to enhance the wellbeing of those receiving and providing care.

The National Care Forum (NCF) has been promoting quality care through the not-for-profit care sector for 25 years and has become a leading voice in the sector. The NCF ensures member interests are represented at all levels and are in constant contact with government departments, politicians and the media to ensure your message gets across.

Thank you very much for your interest in the CARE badge.

As you may have heard, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care announced the proposal for widespread adoption of the CARE badge brand in his press briefing recently and the response we have received from this has been very positive.

The CARE badge brand rights have now been transferred to the Secretary of State for Health & Social Care.

To prevent the possible lopsided distribution of both CARE badges and information about their use, we have halted issuing badges and associated logos until the necessary new details are finalised.

Best wishes and stay safe.

The CARE badge CIC board
