Care Campaign For The Vulnerable has been asked to comment on Labour MP Rosena Allin-Khan calling for more CCTV in care homes after finding her father who has dementia ‘bleeding’ in his care home.
We are very saddened to hear Dr Rosena Allin Khan was faced with seeing her Father suffer a unexplained injuries - this is a scenario many families who contact us are faced with and sadly much worse and have been calling for better transparency in care homes for many years and not just families but care staff too. Thankfully it’s evident more Care Providers I meet are now seeing safety monitoring as a care assist tool to help with brining in a good care culture and to highlight the not so good care practice that can happen - especially when housing vulnerable people. If an MP can rally the powers to be in Parliament and get them to see the huge positives safety monitoring will bring into care homes then we say good for her. Care Campaign Founder Jayne Connery met with Sadiq Khan over two years ago at a Newspsper awards evening asking him then would he support safety monitoring in communal areas, to help bring in better transparency to care homes. Mr Khan replied in writing and confirmed 'I can not support this cause at this time.''

Care Campaign for the Vulnerable is hopeful that Dr Allin -Khan in her position will rally even more support for the use of safety monitoring in care. Care Campaign will continue to work with Care Providers and care staff to champion the benefits of CCTV safety monitoring in care homes and support families who contact us effected by poor care.
"The evidence from Providers who have installed CCTV seems to me to merit careful attention and to be quite persuasive"

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
