#7 days of action: The Assessment and Treatment Units scandal

Hello everyone

you may be aware that this week families are leading the 7 Days of Action campaign, to raise awareness of the 3000 people with learning disabilities currently in Assessment and Treatment Units. A different personal story for each day. They are harrowing and shocking, but the campaign is making waves.
