You are not by yourself
Jeanette.Fair enough the bulk of any communications will be done by you but I am sure I speak for all members here in that we will support you every step of the way and help you in any way we can.
Everything starts with that 1st step but hopefully in time you will see some results and also gather support from others in the same situation as yourself.
You could start off in several directions [/i], one to the usual contacts that we all do such as Gordon Brown,your own MP,Ministers etc and also send a letter to likes of CUK/PRTC ,also YOURS magazine has a section for carers.You might get lucky and have it published in the future.Your local newspaper is a good place to start too.
If this problem is as bad as you,Charles and Rob are saying, the sooner you start raising awareness the better.
