These protests were all part of a campaign to replace such 'hospitals' with proper homes and, as an organisation that exists purely to help people with disabilities to buy a home of their own, we fully support them. You can watch Channel 4's coverage of the protests here and read a blog from The British Institute of Human Rights about how human rights can help secure the support that individuals (and their family) may need to move on from an ATU here.
If you, a family member or someone you support would like to explore how we can help facilitate a move from an ATU back into the community (something we have already successfully done on a number of occasions) call us now on 02476 402211 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Together Matters has produced a really useful Making A Plan For Emergencies document that we recommend everyone completes.
Our colleagues at Learning Disability England have compiled some really useful information to help keep you informed and in touch during the current Coronavirus outbreak.
Given the current Coronavirus advice we’re no longer holding any face to face meetings with clients and will be communicating with them via phone, email or Skype instead.
