Closed petition Create a user-led, independent body to support CQC to monitor secure settings

We believe an independent body led by people with lived experience should be created to work with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to monitor secure settings such as hospitals and assessment and treatment unit (ATUs), and hold them to account.

More details

We have seen too many enquiries and reports talking about abuse. ‘We are sick, angry & upset; we wonder who cares about our lives?’. As of March 2019, over 2,000 learning disabled and autistic people were detained in ATUs & secure hospitals in the UK. This needs to stop.
#WeAreHumanToo are working for change, in 2021 there are concerns that repeated abuse in some institutions is still happening. People are being stripped of their Human Rights, living in fear without a voice.
