THE PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALLERS ASSOCIATION
We are delighted to announce that the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) is aware of our campaign and is fully supportive of the cause. In an email to the campaign team, when referring to CHC, John Bramhall (Deputy CEO) stated:
“We would agree that this is a system that many people are unaware of, that is overly complex and often takes far too long to deliver decisions. We believe this is unacceptable.”
“... there also appears to be evidence of differences in the way different CCGs interpret the national framework.
On this basis we certainly empathise with your cause and support the assertion of inconsistency in decision making as to eligibility.”
We would like to thank John Bramhall and Darren Wilson of the PFA for taking the time to read about the campaign and responding to us. We will continue to publish our campaign to a variety of major organisations and well-known personnel to promote the cause more widely.
We are also very pleased that Beacon, NHS England's chosen provider of CHC advice, is supporting the campaign. On its website, Dan Harbour (Managing Director), said:
“The public support for Philip Mathias’ campaign reflects the strong feelings about the CHC system that we encounter every day from clients who turn to us for help. Rear Admiral Mathias is passionate about this issue, and I have no doubt he’ll be an effective representative for those who’ve already donated to support the legal challenge.”
CARE TO BE DIFFERENT
Care to be Different, the CHC website and brand managed and administered by Farley Dwek Solicitors has been very proactive in its support for the campaign, sharing and promoting our media coverage and Crowd Justice page. We would like to thank Johnathan Dwek and Andrew Farley for their continued support.
We are delighted to be supported by Safeguarding Futures who offer a Will writing, estate planning and care costs advisory service as well as CHC advice.
Melanie Parsons said of the campaign, "Please can you all get behind this campaign. It is vitally important - as those of you who are battling the CHC system are probably all too aware of. Steve and I fully support this action and are personally donating."
