My latest documentary for BBC radio is another on Adult Social Care in England. On Whose Authority? looks at how local authorities are misusing, ignoring or misunderstanding crucial laws on decision making for seriously learning disabled people when they can’t decide for themselves. It follows on from a programme I made earlier this year about people with learning disabilities being pushed towards the “supported living” model of care. Our investigation found it can be very unsafe – and uncaring.
