The stories of how three young people and their families were let down by learning disability services are at the heart of our new report with the Challenging Behaviour Foundation (CBF).
The report, called ‘3 Lives’, looks at the experiences of three young people with learning disabilities.
Connor - who tragically died at an assessment and treatment centre after he was found unconscious after a seizure whilst unsupervised in a bath.
Kayleigh - who spent 10 years in assessment and treatment centers, including Winterbourne View.
Lisa - who was kept for the majority of the time in a locked area at an assessment and treatment centre with staff interacting with her through a small letterbox style hatch.
The main message from these stories is that the care they received:
was not based on their individual needs.
did not put them and their families at the heart of their care.
