It was great to hear today from one of our local MPs, Jim Paice, that he is getting involved in our Show Us You Care campaign
Last week Cambridgeshire County Council joined forces with the Local Government Association to call on our Government to address the crisis we are facing in funding our care services. The vital care and support we provide is under huge pressure because of our rapidly growing ageing population, coupled with the financial pressures that we are all under right now. Last year’s census confirmed that, in terms of people, Cambridgeshire is the fastest growing county in the country.
We’re rolling our sleeves up to face this challenge, but it is without doubt that Government must also act to bring about much needed national changes to the adult social care system. Jim will be using his role as an MP to raise this issue with his colleagues.
