Tweet Philip Hammond


The content below was from our original call to Tell Phil in October 2016.

Start tweeting Chancellor Philip Hammond today to ask him to consider social care in the upcoming Autumn Statement.

We want you to tweet using the hashtag #TellPhil to @PHammondMP and tell him to properly fund social care in the coming Autumn Statement next week.

Why we are doing this

Most people don't understand what 'social care' means or what it covers. And many people are still under the misconception that 'social care' is only for the elderly.

We re-launched Postcards from the Edges mid-October and asked people to give us their opinions on social care, all of which you can see on the Postcards of the Edges website.
