Sadly, ten years on, abuse is still happening in similar facilities and Learning Disability England, its partner and members are carrying out a week of action (starting Monday May 24th 2021) to focus attention once again on the need to, wherever possible, find better housing and care solutions for people with disabilities. You can find out more here.
We were delighted to see that MySafeHome has been mentioned in one of the Government's National Disability Strategy papers.
Monday May 31st is the tenth anniversary of the BBC Panorama programme that exposed the horrific abuse taking place at Winterbourne View.
Learning Disability England and Housing LIN are writing two guides for NHS England to help people with disabilities to find the right home and they are seeking success stories.
