LANCASHIRE CARE ASSOCIATION: LOBBYING CAMPAIGN FOR APPROPRIATE FUNDING
PLMR works with many health and social care organisations to illuminate the inspirational work carried out by their dedicated teams of care workers every day and to highlight the broader challenges facing the sector as a whole.
As part of project work undertaken for the Lancashire Care Association, PLMR secured a broadcast piece on the Association’s key issue – unfair pricing demands from Lancashire PCTs for NHS patients receiving care in private care homes – featured on the BBC Politics Show North West. We also worked with Caring Homes Group, obtaining a double page spread in Learning Disability Today, and drafting the submission which saw Moyra Logue presented with the Special Needs Manager of the Year Award at the National Care Awards.
Following worrying cuts in mental health services, PLMR ensured that Craegmoor’s Managing Director Ted Smith was published in The Times making clear that well-structured supported living is a viable option that best meets the needs of individuals suffering with poor mental health.
