Radio 4 Care in the UK update

Help shape national debate and join the You and Yours studio audience

BBC Radio 4’s month-long Care in the UK campaign ends soon so there’s not long left to take your chance to influence the national debate on how social care should be provided in the future.

BBC Radio 4 wants you to complete their Care Questionnaire in partnership with staff at the London School of Economics who are undertaking a research project.

The interim results will be announced on You and Yours on BBC Radio 4 Thursday 31st January. Your views will also be fed anonymously into the Government's national consultation on social care, which is being held ahead of the publication of a Green Paper on the future of social care. Complete the questionnaire here http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/youandyours/careintheuk/questionnaire.shtml

You and Yours are also inviting you to join them for this final programme in their Care in the UK series at the Radio Theatre in BBC Broadcasting House in London. Find out more here:

Thank you for the links.

I have completed the Questionnaire but again, some of the questions have ambiguous choices and the true story won`t be told.

Have completed the questionaire.
In my personal opinion:
At the end of the day as Carers who do it for our loved ones because we care. We save the Goverment so much money, they never will do anything to ease things for us but put further obstacles in our way.
