National Care Hamper Delivery Service - 3-4 Day Delivery Time

Contacting Us - Coronavirus Procedure 


Please note that, presently, the entire organisation is home-based given Government best-practice guidance. As such, the most effective way of communicating with us as quickly as possible is via our online chat facility (bottom-right hand corner of this website) Team members are staffing this facility to support our extended opening hours between Monday - Friday 8. 00 am to 8 .00pm in order to better assist our clients and their support workers during these challenging times.

You can still, of course, email us at support@moneycarer.org.uk and we will respond as soon as we can also. If you do need to discuss the circumstances of a client or wish to refer a new client into the organisation we will be able to book a telephone or video call appointment at a suitable time with the appropriate team member in order to assist you as well.

We thank you for your appreciation and understanding in advance.

MCF Coronavirus Update - March 19th - 2020

As you know there is a worldwide concern and threat about the spread of the Corvid-19 virus. Throughout The Money Carer Foundation operations, we are following and implementing Government advice and have strict preventative measures in place.

As such, from Friday, March 20th, 2020 all MCF employees will be home-based where they will continue to carry out their respective duties.

We acknowledge that we have a unique role in supporting not only our clients but also the carers and support workers that support them too. As such we have made the decision to extend our normal working hours from 9.00 am-5 pm until 8 am - 6 pm Monday to Friday in order to be able to assist our social worker and care provider colleagues with greater access to our services during this time of uncertainty.

We have also made the decision to 'relax' some of our normal protocols regarding the online payment of food /home delivery orders in order to provide carers with more choices about ensuring mutual clients are getting access to shopping and/or meals delivered to them. We understand that resourcing for care providers may become challenging.

We are here to help in any way we can.

Communicating With Us.
To ensure the quickest response possible please ensure that all contact with MCF is made directly via our new online web-chat facility at http:moneycarer.org.uk  where our team can direct, coordinate and respond online or email us at support@moneycarer.org.uk to register and request a response also.

Please note, Our mainline telephone number 0800 083 0626, will prioritise client calls and will be encouraging telephone appointment booking with relevant team members for any more complicated client discussions that may need to take place between social workers or care managers for example.

Introducing Monika, our New Smart-Phone App
To assist with information sharing with clients and carers, MCF has made the decision to bring forward the launch of our Smartphone App, Monika. This free service will be available to download on Apple and Android platforms from next week and will enable clients and carers to view in real-time the transactions and balances on their MCF card accounts. Push notifications will be sent when payments have reached accounts for greater convenience too along with further enhancements that will be announced in the coming weeks.

We have posted a copy of this notice on our website at https://www.moneycarer.org.uk/about-us/updates-and-announcements.html and would ask that you monitor any updates from us at this address in the coming weeks.

Yours sincerely,

The Money Carer Foundation
