From the frontline

We’re looking for bloggers – people from the frontline of public services, whether you’re a practitioner or you use or rely on particular services.

We’re not interested in policy wonks. We want to hear from people who experience services everyday about how they think policy should change.

Here’s an example. There was a great comment piece in yesterday’s Guardian from Sue Marsh on the welfare reform bill. As many people known, Sue publishes a fantastic blog.

This also demonstrates what’s possible when the people living an issue are given an opportunity to research and analyse policy – read the Responsible Reform report and you’ll learn a lot about the reality of the current reforms (and the lack of genuine consultation underpinning them).

It’s also the kind of approach that our new think tank project is intended to support. So if you’ve got something to say about an aspect of social policy – and you know what you’re talking about because you experience it everyday – then put yourself forward as a contributor to this site. We’d love to hear from you.
