An exploration of the UK carer world

Big society           How does a young carer come into the system?  Worst case scenario? here

What I’m talking about, the spirit we need, is the big society spirit – and here’s why I think its time has come.

Just as we need the big society spirit to get our economy going, we need it in our society too.

Social change is where this coalition has its beating, radical heart.

But the big society needs you to give it life.

So that great project in your community – go and lead it.

It takes two to build that big society.

But above all we must build a bigger, stronger society because in the end the things that make up that kind

of society...strong families, strong communities, strong relationships...
