CCFTV writes to the newly appointed Secretary of State for Health and Social Care.

6th July 2024

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable (CCFTV) has formally written to the newly appointed Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Wes Streeting MP. In our correspondence, we expressed our strong desire to collaborate with the government to ensure that care providers can implement independent safety monitoring systems effectively.

At Care Campaign for the Vulnerable, we have long advocated for the installation of responsible, choice-based, independent monitoring systems within dementia care communities. These systems, managed by a team of NHS/Care professionals, are essential in preventing abuse and ensuring the highest standards of care for our vulnerable citizens.

We are already working with forward-thinking care providers who have begun to implement this crucial technology. Their commitment to transparency and accountability is commendable, and their efforts have significantly improved the safety and well-being of their residents and care staff.

However, financial constraints can be a significant barrier for some providers, particularly those reliant on local authority funding. The government must support these providers to ensure that safety monitoring systems can be implemented across all care services, regardless of financial limitations.

In line with the Labour Party's manifesto promises, we urge the government to prioritise the safety and dignity of our vulnerable. Supporting safety monitoring is a vital step towards fulfilling these promises and ensuring that all individuals receive the high-quality care they deserve.

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable remains committed to working with all stakeholders to achieve these goals and to build a social care system where the vulnerable can thrive and carers are protected.

CCFTV’s letter to the Secretary for Health and Social Care:-


Dear Minister


Congratulations on your appointment as the Secretary for Health and Social Care. We at Care Campaign for the Vulnerable extend our best wishes to you and the newly elected Labour government. As a dedicated organisation advocating for the rights and well-being of vulnerable individuals, we are eager to collaborate with you to ensure the highest standards of care and safety for those in need.


In his recent address, Prime Minister Keir Starmer emphasised that everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. We fully endorse this sentiment and believe it is imperative to translate these words into tangible actions, especially concerning the care of our most vulnerable populations in care homes.


Over the past decade, Care Campaign for the Vulnerable (CCFTV) has been at the forefront of advocating for the implementation of independent safety monitoring systems in dementia care communities. The distressing cases of abuse captured by hidden cameras underscore the urgent need for transparent and accountable care practices. Forward-thinking providers have begun to collaborate with us to install responsible, choice-based, independent, third-party monitoring systems, managed by a team of care professionals. This initiative enhances safety and fosters trust and peace of mind among residents and their families.


We urge the new government to support care providers who are implementing this crucial technology. This support is particularly vital for providers reliant on local authority funding, as they may face financial constraints in adopting these monitoring systems. Government backing would enable more widespread implementation, ensuring that safety and quality care are not privileges but standards across all care services.


The Labour Party's manifesto includes promises to improve social care, and we believe that prioritising the safety and dignity of our vulnerable citizens is a fundamental part of this commitment. By supporting the installation of safety monitoring systems, your department can take a significant step towards eradicating abuse and enhancing the overall quality of care in dementia communities.


We are eager to discuss our work further and share insights from our decade of experience in advocating for safer care environments. Our initiatives have shown that when care providers and advocacy organisations collaborate, we can create care settings that truly respect and protect the individuals who have contributed so much to our society.


This is no longer a contentious issue; it is a necessary evolution in care standards. Many providers are already on board, and with government support, we can ensure that all providers have the opportunity to implement these vital safety measures. Together, we can build a social care system that upholds the values of compassion, dignity, and respect that the Labour Party stands for.


We look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your team to make these essential changes a reality. Please do not hesitate to contact us to arrange a meeting or further discussions on how to support this initiative.
