Remembering Winterbourne View

Monday 31st May is the 10th Anniversary of the Panorama programme that showed the abuse that was happening at Winterbourne View.

As a result of the scandal, the government laid out the Transforming Care programme, which aimed to halve the number of learning disabled and autistic people in inpatient settings by 2019. But this target was not even closely met and the timescale was extended and now aims to reach the same goal by 2024.
#Right2Home self-advocates and campaigners are organising a week of action leading up to the anniversary, culminating with a candlelight vigil on 31st May.

Rainbow Living believes that every person with a learning disability and autistic person has the right to a home. Our work to empower people with disability to exercise choice in their own lives, including the right to choose where and with whom they live, is as important now as it has ever been, and we are looking forward to continuing to provide opportunities to enable independent supported living.
