Tell us your views on the future of social care in England - 2 weeks to go

The Department of Health wants to hear your opinions about the future of social care in England. The consultation Caring for our future: shared ambitions for care and support ends on Friday 2 December 2011.

Then in April 2012, the Department of Health will publish a report with their recommendations for the future of social care in England.

We know how important social care can be for people affected by Parkinson's, be it at home, or in a community setting such as residential care. But people are often going without the support they need or facing catastrophic care bills because the system is means tested.

So whether you're a person with Parkinson's, a carer, a health or social care professional or anyone else affected by social care it's crucial you have your say now.

We're seeking opinions from our staff, members and supporters to make sure the views of people affected by Parkinson's are represented. If you want us to include your views, contact Donna O'Brien, Social Policy and Campaigns Officer, on

You can also give your views directly to the Department of Health.

We also want to hear your stories about social care. Tell us about your experiences below or email
