Changes Needed for Disability Services

Changes Needed for Disability ServicesSerious changes are expected to be made when it comes to support for people with disabilities. The BBC broadcast last night, Undercover Care: The Abuse Exposed, exposed hospitals abusing people with learning disabilities and autism.

A recent investigation has found that abuse has taken place in South London and Cornwall, where a number of people have been abused for more than one year. Therefore the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD) has urged a revision of the legislation by the government.

There need to be a secure support group that people with disabilities can turn to. However, this type of abuse in organizations does not happen everywhere. There are many organizations that provide people with the necessary support and help they need.

The companies that are not providing the utmost care could be forced to shut down. This may cause an even greater crisis; shortage of specialty services. A report from Laing and Bussion states, there are several factors that are getting in the way of support for the nearly 100,000 people who have some type of mental illness.
