What we're campaigning for
‘It was only when I really put my foot down, after seven months of waiting for a social services assessment and Mum ending up in hospital, that Mum’s care finally began to move forward – and still our savings are disappearing fast.’
- Enomwoyi, daughter and carer of Pearl, who has dementia
