Welcome

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.

Care Campaign For The Vulnerable is a independent, non profit, national organisation leading the way raising awareness for the use of safety monitoring in communal areas in all care and nursing homes in the U.K. and private rooms with consent. Our 'professionals in care' team’s personal and professional experience allows us to work with families that contact us regarding care concerns as well as care providers asking us in to talk to staff and families on the benefits safety monitoring can bring into communal areas in all care homes. The only U.K. safety monitoring in care homes initiative working WITH the care sector. Care Campaign For The Vulnerable continues to gain support from care providers, care professionals and tens of thousands of supporters. We understand the many pressures and sometimes unrealistic expectations placed on care workers - allowing us a balanced understanding to how safety monitoring would be a postive care assist tool - not just for vulnerable residents, families and care staff but Care Providers also. We are passionate promoting and raising awareness to good person centred care and support for our elderly, especially living with dementia and championing better support for our dedicated care workers and families in care. We also promote the many commercial benefits safety monitoring has on the care home sector - proving to save valuable NHS and care home resources. Care Campaign for the Vulnerable participated in the Care Quality Commission (CQC) Roundtable on Technology and is regularly invited to speak at Dementia Care Shows, events, exhibitions and care homes. We regularly comment on social care issues and our Safety monitoring in communal areas in care homes initiative in the Daily Express newspaper /media/TV and radio. Dominic Grieve MP, took our safety monitoring in care initiative to Westminster Hall to be debated in 2018 We continue to raise awareness for the adopting of safety monitoring in all care homes for a more open and transparent care culture through our Care Campaign For The Vulnerable initiative.

British Actress Aimi Macdonald is Care Campaign for the Vulnerable Ambassador - raising public awareness for better, safer, transparent care within the care sector.

I am delighted to be invited as a Ambassador to assist in this wonderful campaign instigated by Jayne Connery regarding CCTV security in care homes throughout the UK. This, I feel, will benefit carers, staff, residents and their families in the event of any dispute. As a relative of someone suffering with Alzheimers disease I have been involved with care homes over the last ten years and I feel the knowledge I have can contribute to this very important initiative
