Calling for change to social care

In March it will have been four years since the Government promised to reform social care, and yet we’re still waiting for change. It’s now more important than ever that we continue to raise awareness of the broken social care system – made worse by the pandemic. We want to do this by sharing the stories of people affected by MS.

We’re looking for help to find people from across England to inform our influencing work around social care, and work with our press team to talk publicly about their experience.

We’d like people to tell us:

  • What social care they receive and how they feel about it

  • If their care has been reduced or cancelled during the pandemic

  • What it’s like being a working age adult and having to rely on social care

  • If they need social care but simply can’t access it

  • If they’re a carer, what impact a lack of social care has on them and the person they care for

If you live with MS, or know someone who does, and would like to be involved, please contact [email protected].
