The new North Devon Gazette and Archant #couldyoucare campaign has been launched to look at what it means to work as a carer

Could you care? That's the question we're asking in the coming weeks as we launch a new series of articles.

The North Devon Gazette and its fellow Archant titles in East Devon is launching the #couldyoucare campaign to look at the issues and challenges facing the adult social care sector.

We hope to encourage recruitment, raise awareness and most importantly, bring you the human stories of those who work in the industry, the people they care for and also those for whom the system is falling short.

We want to show just what families and carers - paid and unpaid - are facing, as well as how rewarding working in the industry can be.

And this is where we want to hear from you - do you work in care, or are you or a family member receiving care? Perhaps you work for an organisation or charity and want to get your message across?

If you'd like to share your story, email newsdesk@northdevongazette.co.uk or call us on 01271 345056.
