#BritainCares launch of new social care campaign

April 18, 2013

A press release from Scope:

 

Today Scope and other organisations are launching a major new campaign because too many disabled people are being denied essential support to do things like washing, dressing and getting out of the house to work, study and have a social life.

The Government has a choice.  Now.  Will they right this wrong, or make it even worse?  It depends on whether they see people care enough to speak out.


The campaign aims to use a powerful demonstration of public backing to encourage the Government to put in place the funding to make sure disabled people get vital social care.

 

Can you get involved?  There are two main ways to take part:

          Upload a photo saying “I care!” or “We care!” at www.britaincares.co.uk where you can email it to your MP with a message

          If you have experience of the importance of social care yourself, please share your story with your MP – we urgently need to get them to understand more about the importance of social care combined with all the other cuts – see http://www.britaincares.co.uk/tell-us-your-story


The campaign could make a direct difference to the lives of more than 100,000 disabled people through getting the Government to provide social care.

 

At the same time, the campaign is about trying to show there are lots of people in Britain with shared values of fairness and freedom, and we want to live up to those values by making sure disabled people can live their lives like everyone else.  We want to challenge the Government by showing them this.

 

Please get involved in Britain Cares today or tweet with the hashtag #BritainCares!
