Care Campaign for the Vulnerable working with the care sector to raise awareness on the preventable/non preventable incidents/accidents that can happen in care homes. We are raising national awareness for a more open and transparent care culture by championing the use of safety monitoring throughout communal areas in all U.K. care homes.

The CCFTV Organisation

WHO ARE WE?

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable (CCFTV) was founded by former promotions and airline executive, Jayne Connery, who lives in Buckinghamshire. During her time in the care sector, she saw an urgent need for better protection for both carers and vulnerable residents. The decision was made to take her mother back home due to a lack of transparency in her care. Jayne struggled to navigate the system and told of little support when trying to safeguard her loved one. Jayne decided to give up her work to become a care partner while setting up a dementia support group for families. Through sheer hard work and commitment, today, CCFTV is a national, not for profit, safety in elderly dementia care organisation working with the sector to champion and promote the use of safety monitoring in communal areas within UK care homes. Our work brings families and care workers to us seeking help and advice. CCFTV is the only safety monitoring in care organisation that directly supports families and carers by working together with the care sector, including commissioning groups, safeguard teams and social workers and help to bring positive outcomes. CCFTV supports families through evictions as well as being invited to care homes to talk about the benefits safety monitoring will bring to all who live and work in care. We are regularly asked to comment on elderly dementia care /social care issues on TV and national news media and constantly raise awareness to a care sector vastly under-funded and often lacking support. CCFTV - TOGETHER, WE WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE #ellensmemory

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable was one of the first organisations to call for a public inquiry way back in April 2020 and so we are now pleased to see a commitment from the Government to hold a public inquiry on the handling of care homes during the Covid 19 pandemic. If you would like to talk to us in confidence about your experience in a care home during the Covid pandemic, please contact us in strict confidence at ccftv.cares@gmail.com

WHAT WE DO...

We are passionate about working together with care industry professionals to champion better transparency, safety and care particularly to elderly living with dementia. CCFTV attracts national media, commentating on elderly social care issues and gaining tens of thousands of supporters - leading an influential initiative for the use of safety monitoring in all U.K. care environments. We give our services FREE OF CHARGE. CCFTV spent five years collating and submitting evidential documentation for the use of safety monitoring in care homes after our founder’s mother suffered negative care experience and often witnessed care workers have fingers of blame pointing at them after unwitnessed injuries to vulnerable residents occurred. The evidence sought - NHS and care home cost savings, safeguarding reductions, agency spend reduction, assistance with staff disciplinaries, quality monitoring daily, improved inspection report outcomes - as well as a commercial value too. CCFTV gained support from MP’s taking our safety monitoring in care to Westminster Hall and calling it ''persuasive”.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Objectives

Mandatory use of independent safety monitoring in all long term care facilities

Establishing in law that elder abuse is a hate crime and should be treated as such


Ending the shame of resident eviction from care homes on commercial grounds by giving them rights of tenancy


The professionalisation of carer roles with commensurate remuneration


Greater participation of family and advocates in planning and delivery of care

Who supports us...?

Our team are a voluntary team of experts in care ranging from CEO’s Care Providers to Dementia Care trainers. CCFTV raises awareness of elderly social care issues and comments in the National News/TV/Radio. We are a national, not for profit, safety in elderly care organisation and lead influencers for providers to adopt safety monitoring that leads to a more transparent, open and safe caring culture especially when looking after elderly living with dementia. CCFTV also advises NHS and care providers - having worked with NHS Croydon Hospital on their Dementia Care Strategy and invited to talk to families and care staff in on the benefits safety monitoring can bring to all care environments. CCFTV allow families and carers a voice. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is grateful to all our 80,000 supporters, including families, care staff and leading care industry professionals.

It was a privilege to be asked by a granddaughter CCFTV is supporting, to meet her 103-year-old grandmother, Sarah, at her North London care home. Lisa told us "The support and advice CCFTV gave me was so appreciated It's only right you get to meet my grandmother that you've helped so much by supporting me." Thank you to all the staff for facilitating the visit and it was a pleasure to finally get to meet lovely Sarah. All safety and risk assessment, and Covid test, was adhered to.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable leading the call for a public inquiry on the handling of care homes during the COVID pandemic.

It is absolutely essential that a public enquiry provides answers for many grieving families who believe their loved ones living in care homes were sacrificed in the aim of ’not overwhelming’ the NHS. That view was compounded further, when all relatives were excluded from care home visiting under lockdown rules. Despite their despair and anxiety about a possible decline in standards of care - given care home staff were under severe pressure and often isolating - Government and the Regulator failed to intervene. No insistence that providers adopt safety monitoring systems to ensure third party audit, no appointment of family members as primary carers and in many cases not even a window visit facilitated to bring some comfort to the vulnerable older person.


Unless a public enquiry is progressed, the electorate will know that little or no value is attached to older vulnerable people and that in subsequent periods of severe societal challenge such as a pandemic, older people are simply expendable. Many residents died prematurely and needlessly because not even some basic safeguards were afforded them.
