The Challenging Behaviour Foundation have been commissioned by NHS England for this work. With your input, we hope to be able to make advocacy more effective for adults with learning disabilities and autistic adults who are in mental health hospitals.
Are you a family carer of an adult with learning disabilities or of an autistic adult who is or has been an inpatient in a mental health, learning disability or autism specialist hospital?
In these hospitals, advocates work to ensure that people with learning disabilities and autistic people who are inpatients are listened to, understood, supported, treated fairly, and kept safe.
Family carers may take on the role of advocating for their relative, or another form of advocacy may be provided.
You can do this by completing a questionnaire about your experiences of advocacy in mental health hospitals. This questionnaire can be complete anonymously.
If you would like to take part please complete the online questionnaire:
Or email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 01634 838739 for a paper copy
