UNDER LOCK AND KEY

Families provide long-term love, care and support for their disabled relatives, and speak up for them. Even when people leave home, they do not leave the family. Families continue to offer a lifetime of involvement and support, and know a great deal about their relative's needs and wishes, likes and dislikes. When the service and support for a relative go wrong, it can be very difficult for families to deal with. They may be faced with a barrage of information and decisions to take, as well as coming to terms with what has happened. If you are concerned about your relative's care you may contact your relative's care manager to address issues. Any safeguarding concerns may be raised with your local safeguarding team, who can be contacted via social services. It is important that families know where they can find impartial information, and find out what support is available to them. Here is a list of organisations and links that you may find useful:

TOGETHER AGAINST HATE CAMPAIGN

At Channel 4, we champion unheard voices and stand up for inclusion.

That’s why we joined forces with some of our advertising partners to highlight the growing issue of abuse towards customer-facing staff in the UK, with more than 150,000 incidents each year. The ad break featured real employees, who love their jobs, but share the abuse and threatening behaviour that they and others like them have experienced. Fortunately this kind of abuse and violence is perpetrated by a small minority, however we believe that it’s never acceptable.

If you were shocked by the incidents featured in this ad break, or have experienced them yourself, there is support available through the links below:
