We are a campaign group for carers across the UK run by independent, unpaid carers.

We have experience of the care system as it operates in the UK today and we consider it to be desperately under funded and not fit for purpose. We aim to provide a non-party-political campaign platform to change the way that opinion-formers, politicians and journalists think about carers.

But first and foremost we intend to get the system changed.

    I’m currently working on a project that examines the value of the arts in tackling disadvantage, highlighting the fact that these projects are likely to be easy targets for cuts by local authority and health commissioners – a move that would seriously impact many vulnerable groups. Having read your blog, I wondered if this would be something that would be of interest to you.

    The work is being led by Gerard Lemos (http://www.lemosandcrane.co.uk) who has been working for the last 15 years on issues at the forefront of a range of social problems including anti-social behaviour, money management, community cohesion, hate incidents, supporting vulnerable people and the rehabilitation of offenders.

    Gerard’s report will be launched next Monday (18th July) at a half-day conference at the Barbican. If this is a topic that is interesting to you, we would be really open to you getting involved in whatever way works best for you – for example you could come along to the event to live blog, we could set up for you to speak to Gerard or we could offer you some video content of one of the arts projects that works with women ex-offenders.

    Let me know if this is something you would be interested in finding out more about and we can discuss what content works best for you.

    Many thanks

    Nick Colwill
