This campaign aims to keep the scandal of people with Learning Disabilities and Autism still being locked up in secure mental health units firmly on the political agenda and, with more than 2,000 individuals currently housed in such facilities, it's clearly much needed. You can find out more about the campaign, including five days of action from May 18th - 22nd, right here.
The Government has just announced funding of £62 million to help move people from hospital settings back into their local community.
Right2Home would like you to write to your MP to call for more to be done to move people with Learning Disabilities and Autism out of mental health hospitals and back into their community.
Remember that Learning Disability England has a range of FREE resources online to help keep you safe, busy and informed during 'lockdown'.
