Whose responsibility is it anyway?

We see needs all over the place but whose responsiblity is it to meet those needs. Today in Britain the expectation is that the government in one way or another will meet all the needs of the people. They provide a National Health Service, fund social care so that the weaker members of society are cared for and protected, provide benefits for those who are unable to work for some reason etc etc. Well if the government was not going to meet these needs who else was going to do so? Businesses, social enterprises and charities were not managing to meet all these needs which was why the government originally stepped in. The mixing up of communities in the 1940s lead to some people finding out how the other half lived and there were a number of surprises. People were genuinely concerned and wanted to support those less able than themselves to obtain health care, good food etc. The vision for a world fit for heroes included a health care system available to everyone and other aspects of the Welfare State that we now take for granted.

Now we are finding ourselves in a situation where the government is retreating because it has realised that it quite simply cannot afford to meet all these needs. Now we have organisations that provide health and social care that depend on the government for money via contracts and grants. They are trying to find other ways of surviving. We also have people who have needs and somehow as a society we have to find ways of meeting those needs. This is why we so need to find people who will be history makers and take responsibility to meet those needs. If you have a vision of how you can do something to meet the needs in society you must develop a strategy to put it into action for the sake of those around you.  have become so used to being helped and supported that we have forgotten how to stand on our own two feet. if one will not do what God wants he will organise anotehr way of doing the same thing is NHS it will provide an alternative
