Following last nights BBC Panorama investigation into the abuse at Winterbourne View Hospital the learning disability coalition have created the following e-action:
It calls on MP's to ensure that the human rights of people with a learning disability are at the heart of the forthcoming social care white paper.
Please share this around your networks.

My source: The Choice Forum is brought to you by the Foundation for People with Learning Disabilities http://www.learningdisabilities.org.uk The Foundation provides staff training, consultancy on service improvement, and undertakes research into policy and practice development on all areas related to people with learning disabilities. For more information please see http://www.learningdisabilities.org.uk/our-work/
Thank you for taking the time to email your MP and asking them to reform the social care system so that the kind of abuse shown on BBC Panorama cannot happen again. It is vital that we have a social care system which is well funded and enables people with a learning disability to have the same choices and chances as everyone else.
Please forward any responses you receive to firstname.lastname@example.org and don't forget to ask your friends to email their MP too.
