Collecting life stories raising awareness can you help?

Collecting life stories raising awareness can you help?

This blog – awareness campaign is based on the life stories, thoughts opinions, and words experiences good or bad on families across the UK  
The words received to date have been used in reports to government, motions at councils the basis of talks across the NHS, carer groups, events and conferences and the basis for short films all to bring more understanding and help       

I truly believe our words can change lives – you can add your words by e mail at and my promise to  raise the best possible awareness I can as a son

You can view some of the films and work being done at the links below
