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

If you or someone you have been visiting in a residential care facility have been mistreated in any way University of Leeds Centre for Disability Studies would like to hear from you.
The National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) is carrying out some research into the provision of housing services for people with Learning Disabilities and has developed two short surveys, one for Commissioners and one for Service Providers.
