Britain Cares: Britain Crafts!

Britain Cares, Britain Crafts

Get creative to show how much you care!

Social care is a lifeline for many disabled people; essential support to wash, dress, get out the house and live their lives. To stop disabled people being denied this support, politicians need to know we care about this issue.

Put yourself in your MP’s shoes. They receive thousands of emails and letters every week, on various issues. How do they know people really care about support for disabled people?

Use your creativity to say “I care” in a way that matters to you – let’s show them Britain Cares!

29 July – 4 August is Britain Cares: Britain Crafts week! 

Now’s the time to get crafting! All around the country, craft groups and creative individuals will be taking part in Britain Cares: Britain Crafts week to show their MPs how important social care is.

Please join in! You can send your MP your crafted ‘I Care’ message during Britain Cares : Britain Crafts week, and join the thousands of people already involved in the Britain Cares campaign.

It’s easy to say ‘I Care’! Simply choose what to make – try using one of the examples below – print out the relevant letter and send to your MP!  Email us if you’d like more information at

Don’t forget to show us a photo! Share them on the Britain Cares Pinterest page or email Britain Cares a photo before you post them to your MP.

Want to show you care en masse? The London Café Drink Shop Do are holding a Britain Cares evening on Tuesday 30 July – find out more about the event on Facebook!
