Care Campaign for the Vulnerable features in July's edition of Care Home Professional talking safety monitoring in care homes

9th July 2019

Care Campaign For The Vulnerable features in this month’s edition of Care Home Professional the leading care industries magazine talking to Editor Lee Peart on the overwhelming benefits to safety monitoring in communal areas in care homes. In a CHP survey a fabulous 80% of the public and health workers give support on the use of CCTV in communal areas in care homes and private rooms with consent. In over five years we have faced little resistance from staff who support better transparency in care environments and we will continue to push forward for a more accepting approach to safety monitoring in the care of our most vulnerable and good dedicated care workers.

Our Statement

CCFTV is not surprised at all with the results this poll as those findings are essentially aligned with all other polls conducted over the last couple of years with regard to the use of CCTV in care homes. It is interesting that almost 95% of those polled believed in the use of cameras in some capacity with 80% believing such systems should be mandatory. Thats an overwhelming response with only 5% against any use.


Whilst respecting the fact that every one has a view on such systems, CCFTV places more value on responses from those providers who actually currently use camera technology. The Orchard CEO for example has confirmed the very material benefits as have many other users, yet there are those sector leaders who remain publicly against deployment of camera technology. That position is adopted regardless of the fact they have not tested the use of such systems or consulted with providers who have real factual outcomes. Other representative organisations also seem reticent and express negative viewpoints, yet offer up not a single untried solution that can reverse the current increase in allegations of abuse and serious concerns effecting older people in care homes.


Providers using this technology have confirmed a reduction in untoward events and sustained improvements in the quality of care delivered to the vulnerable people living in their care homes. Very hard to argue with real tangible outcomes.

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
