Because of where I am based, it is inevitable that the blog will have a UK-flavour. I do try to explain what might be UK-specific terms in the Glossary, but if you feel I have missed anything, please get in touch. I live not far from the city of Salisbury, and volunteer for a couple of local charities, Age UK and the Stroke Association. Please note that I am not a spokesperson for either (or, indeed, for any) of these organisations.
