Join our campaign

Across the UK, thousands of parents, siblings and carers are delivering high levels of medical care to their children at home. For many, the physical, emotional and financial strain is unseen, unrecognised and often misunderstood.

#notanurse_but is a parent-driven campaign that aims to shine a light on the reality of life behind closed doors for these families. It’s goal – to gather the evidence and highlight to decision makers the massive gaps in support that currently exist and need to be filled.

Join the campaign and help us raise awareness of the challenges these families face 24/7 and identify what needs to change. Please also visit our campaign page on Facebook.
