Join the campaign to end the torture of Disabled people in so-called ‘care homes’

ALLFIE, DPAC and ROFA demand an immediate statutory review into the torture, sexual violence, violence and deaths of Disabled people in institutions. Abuse must end in all service provision, and Commissioners who are using public money for Disabled people to be abused held to account! Please get involved and register for our next campaign planning meeting:

  • Date: Thursday 1st June 2023
  • Time: 5pm – 7pm
  • Where: Zoom (link will be emailed automatically when you book)
  • Access: BSL interpreters and captions
  • The event will be recorded for note taking purposes

June 2023



While education, health and social care is being underfunded, profits are being made through incarceration and segregated provision in which Disabled people are subjected to tactics of violence, harm and torture. This is a historical systemic failing, recently re-highlighted by the BBC, Guardian and ALLFIE:
“The failures behind the scandals, by contrast, are rooted in systems that are massively opaque. In the case of children’s homes and residential schools, the bodies responsible include Ofsted, local councils and a tangle of profit-making companies.” (Guardian, April 2023)

The statistics speak for themselves: The top 20 private providers making £250m+ in annual profits, alongside a 9% cut in funding per pupil (Guardian)

We want to spend this money on improving the life chances and opportunities for ALL Disabled people; the government want to lock them up and pour profits into shareholder returns for corporations!
