Bring People Home from Psychiatric Hospital Manifesto published

Bring People Home from Psychiatric Hospital Manifesto published during Learning Disability week

For the first time, people with learning difficulties and autistic people with lived experience of psychiatric hospital detention have come together to set out our demands to the political parties wanting to form the next Government.

Free Our People Now – Inclusion London has launched Manifesto Asks – Bring People Home from Psychiatric Hospital – Inclusion London.    

manifesto to bring people home from psychiatric hospital

We are calling for urgent action to stop, once and for all, the scandal of 2000 people with learning difficulties and autistic people being locked up in hospital

We call on all political parties and prospective parliamentary candidates to pledge their support for our manifesto demands and to do what is needed to end this scandal by stopping locking us up and moving us from hospitals to living in the community and having fulfilled lives.

We are demanding:

·    A powerful say on how to keep us out of psychiatric hospitals

·    Our rights to live decent lives in our communities.

·    To be treated with respect and protected from abuse everywhere.

“There is no reason why any future Government should continue to fail to meet its targets and make a commitment to move people from hospitals into their own homes.”

“£534 million, which is currently spent to keep us locked up, could be used instead to invest in a national plan to move everyone into their own homes rather than locking us up and throwing away the key. It’s a national scandal that must end once and for all.” Says Simone Aspis,mFree Our People Now Manager.
