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

Petition Details

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.

Additional Information

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.

If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
