The Recorder is launching a campaign to raise awareness about social care and the need for more carers.

Adult social care services provide vital help and support to enable people to live their lives as fully and independently as possible.

In an aging population, most of us will need such help as we get older, but social care also provides a lifeline to those battling lifelong conditions and enables them to lead fulfilling lives at home, work and in the community.

By 2020, London Councils predict there will be a £300million funding shortfall.

Social care is a complex issue and over four weeks the Recorder will be looking into these challenges but also celebrating the hard work of carers who enable hundred of thousands of people to lead satisfying lives.

If you are a carer or cared for please contact us to share your story email ellena.cruse@archant.co.uk
