Learning Disabilities Accommodation Campaign
We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to reject the proposal to close some group homes for adults with learning disabilities. We believe that such a proposal is wrong. These people are some of the most vulnerable living in our city and often have no voice of their own. They deserve the same rights as any other citizen, that they be allowed to remain in their own home as they choose. to remove them from their own home for financial reasons is morally wrong and any move would have a detrimental effect on their health and well-being. We call upon Brighton and Hove City Councillors to reject this proposal.
This campaign is supported by UNISON, staff who care for adults with learning disabilities, family members.
The petition will be considered at the Adult Care & Health Committee meeting on the 24th September 2012.
