Update on Winterbourne View Out of Sight Campaign

Last week I went to Westminster with other families whose loved ones with learning disabilities & challenging behaviour have been supported by Mencap and the Challenging Behaviour Foundation. We told our stories to Norman Lamb MP, Minister for Care.

Another parent has kindly agreed for me to share her blog about the meeting. Please read & support us.

Chrissy's New Home

We've been very busy getting Chrissy's new bungalow ready for her.

She is on her way there now. Very excited!

Long-time readers of this blog will know what a fight we've had to get to this stage in her life. She spent over four years in an assessment & treatment unit, & now she's ready to face the world again.

Let's hope the world is ready for Chrissy!

Fingers crossed that she will fall in love with her lovely new bungalow on the outskirts of Winchester city centre. It's going to be a huge change from living on a locked ward. She will have two carers with her at all times, which will enable her to live as independently as she can.

Watch this space....
