Support for patients in ATUs

Self-advocates from Sunderland People First, Speaking Up Together and Skills for People set up a group called ‘We Are Human Too’ after the abuse at Whorlton Hall was exposed. You can find out more about We Are Human Too group with our video:

We have created a Government petition to protect people with learning disabilities and autistic people from further abuse.

We have developed an easy read template letter that people can share with their local MP to support the Petition (attached).
