AGE CONCERN is after your views to support a major new care campaign.

The charity is calling for a radical reform of the social care system in the run-up to a major Government consultation about the future of care.

The nationwide campaign 'The Big Q' demands care for the elderly enabling them to keep their dignity and control their lives.

A spokesperson for the charity said: "The social care system means that many older people are forced to soldier on without the care they need, slowly stripping away their

dignity and independence."
