Why social media is important for social care

At a time when public support is urgently needed for social work and social care why are we not using social media to engage with our stakeholders?

“it is not a question now about whether you should be involved in social media but how well you do it” @equalman

We have a big battle ahead to engage the public in the critical debates about the care crisis, the Dilnot recommendations for the future of social care funding and the Caring for our Future consultation.

The phenomenal engagement that takes place through social media channels suggests that we have to take seriously the importance of digital engagement for social care.
