Hi, I’m Stuart Sorensen. I’d like to welcome you issue 4 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 each issue of Care To Share 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. We accept articles from first time writers and publishing veterans. We have support workers and carers, service-users and senior professionals all rubbing shoulders within the Care To Share community 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. Previous volumes are available to download from the blog at http://www.caretosharemagazine.wordpress.com
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 5 will need articles too – as will issues 6, 7 and 8. 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.
