Dear local government, your now responsible for Social Care budgets. P.s. we’ve slashed your budgets P.p.s. we recommend private care providers should take up the contracts P.p.p.s. These cost approx 11% more! Yours sincerely

As BBC Panorama’s has shown, unpaid carers provide a significant contribution to the support of their friends and family. We need to make sure they are supported for the sake of their own health and wellbeing

A bed, a simple piece of equipment, from the occupational therapist increases Martine's independence, relieves pressure on her carer (husband) and helps to keep the family together.

Breaches of Care Act and other legal duties were already too numerous to count....Far too late for Council to be saying ‘we are on the brink of what is legal’! When is govt going to fund councils properly? Why don’t more Councils directly challenge govt?

In tears. Rachel and her Mum remind me so much of how I used to be with my Mum. It leaves you constantly exhausted, but when you love somebody, you just keep going. It affects everything, including your mental health. You have NO social life.

Ian just got back from a Coastguard callout to a suicidal female in the water. This is the third time for the same girl. Police also in attendance. Not one mental health bed space available in the whole region. No option but to talk her down and send her home 😭

So I've finally gotten around to watching the first part of Panorama and I'm completely overwhelmed by how it made it feel. I work for SCC and feel very proud that I do following this. The powerful message about carers was also so inspiring to see

Unfortunately when you become a carer there is no induction or handbook quite often you don't even realise you are a carer. It would be helpful for carers support and identification to be embedded as part of day to day good practice in the health and care system

Difficult, heartbreaking but vital viewing again from this week exposing - rebuilding a public Adult Social Care system after years of sell-offs & devastating Tory cuts is one of biggest social policy challenges we face. Govt response has been woeful

The series has helped tell the story of just how deep the goes. Alongside the chronic underfunding, privatisation is damaging social care. Privatisation of social care has failed.

Dual problems of privatisation and austerity are causing the . It's an indictment on successive governments that care services are facing the crisis exposed by . We need a properly funded care system that meets people's needs and without private profit.

My thought from is that will continue to care for their loved ones no matter what the cost to themselves. That is being exploited by a broken system. With no voice carers rely on others to raise theirs: that job falls on everyone of us here.
