In the last few weeks there have been more people and families sharing their stories of system failures and human rights abuses.
Today, 6 January 2022, the Independent newspaper has published a letter from 5 organisations including the Learning Disability England Rep Body Co Chairs about the lack of progress on Transforming Care.
The letter raises concerns about the number of people with learning disabilities and autistic people still being held in secure hospitals and ATUs.
And the number of people who have died unnecessarily whilst in these institutions.
The letter calls for the government to deliver on a “credible, evidence based, robust and detailed plan which redirects the half a billion pounds currently being spent on the wrong type of care”.
