I believe it’s essential for people like me who draw on social care to be listened to and able to influence policy. I want my nomination to create space for our voices to be heard and help people drawing on care and support to be able to live their best lives. As far as I know, I’m the only person with lived experience to appear on this list of sector leaders, so I’m honoured and thrilled to be nominated with them. Anything which drives more awareness of social care in the media is to be welcomed.
