End the care crisis lobby

On 6 March, Ambassadors joined thousands of campaigners from across the disability sector for a mass lobby as we demanded the Government take action to fix our underfunded social care system. 

It was a fantastic opportunity to talk about the issues directly with MPs and show how strongly we want change sooner rather than later. 

As well as meeting their MPs, Ambassadors wrote questions for a live Q&A with Paul Burstow, the Minister responsible for this area.   They were also part of the first ever Twobby (online lobby) – which enabled hundred more campaigners who couldn’t attend to still ask questions and tell their story.  As you’ll see from the video our Ambassadors were at the forefront of the photo shoot outside of Parliament which was used for successful media coverage of day. 

Thank you so much to all those who took part in the lobby and if you’ve been writing to your MP in the meantime.  If you want to get invovled then you can do so here
