As a little ‘taster’ I’ve decided to publish my editor’s notes for issue 1 a little early. The rest of the magazine will be published on Friday November 15th. This is just to ‘whet your appetite’ a little.
Hi, I’m Stuart Sorensen. I’d like to welcome you to this, the first ever issue of Care To Share Magazine. I’m really thrilled with the way that it’s turned out and with the help and hard work from so many contributors that has gone into making the magazine a reality.
Care To Share isn’t like other magazines. It’s not tied to any particular publishing house and neither is there any recognisable editorial agenda. In fact, that’s the whole point.
Care To Share has set out to capture any and all views about social care. We accept articles and opinions from anyone who would like to write for us, regardless of their experience or professional status. In this issue we have articles from first time writers and publishing veterans. We have support workers and carers, service-users and senior professionals all rubbing shoulders within these pages and all given equal footing to make their case or have their say. All we ask from contributors is that they remain within the law (avoid libel or abuse for example) and keep their articles relevant to social care.
You’ll find real diversity in issue 1. Actually I defy anyone to agree with everything printed here – I certainly don’t. But, as every good care worker should always keep in mind:
Who cares what I think?
Nobody is always right and good care practice demands that we are always prepared to listen to those around us.
Please enjoy the articles presented here, join in with the discussions on the Care To Share blog – and spread the word to your peers and colleagues. Issue 2 will need articles too – as will issues 3, 4 and 5. If you have something to say about social care please don’t hesitate to Email me at info@TheCareGuy.com
Articles should be between 500-1000 words long on any genuine social care topic.
Go on – you know you want to.
