I have worked in the health and social care sector for nearly 20 years, as a volunteer, Support Worker, Registered Nurse, Registered Manager, and in Senior Management. I have witnessed excellent practice and have worked in turnaround roles to rectify poor practice and culture.

I am extremely passionate about the work being done by CCFTV to support vulnerable people and those who care for them.

I am a business culture analyst, looking to support the care industry build strong communities through their culture. I will show how to bring permanent staff back in to the industry, save fortunes on wasted revenue and most importantly, provide the best care possible for all residents and service users. I look forward to connecting with other like-minded people to make the necessary changes that are well overdue.

Say So...

We met Jayne Connery at her latest networking meeting and we were so pleased to talk to people who were as motivated as us to create real and meaningful change for the lives of the service users in care settings. We realised straight away that our goals were the same – keeping vulnerable people safe.
We are proud to be a supporter of the Care Campaign for the Vulnerable and applaud the fantastic progress being achieved by Jayne and her group of experienced and committed Health Care Professionals.


More and more progressive and forward-looking care providers are realising that to include all their staff in contributing and highlighting risk information can only lead to better overall performance and, specifically, greater safety for the service users. Notably, Say So can operate with existing procedures or technical installations such as CCTV safety monitoring and of course will not be limited by privacy considerations so has an access-all-areas deterrent capability. We believe the writing is on the wall, positive change is coming to communication in the workplace in the care sector.

With so many reviews, reports, studies and care staff themselves telling us of the concerns that they were unable to report, our service will unlock much more information than would otherwise be available to management concerning risks to the service user and ultimately to the care provider.
We believe that Say So is not only a tool for improving risk management – it also makes good financial and business sense in so many ways.

We look forward to working with Jayne and her campaign group to reach our common goal of keeping vulnerable people safe while receiving care. All details of our service are at www.say-so.co.uk and enquiries can be made at info@say-so.co.uk

It is important to support good causes, but some are also worthy causes such as JayneConnery - CCTVDementia campaign. I have investigated many concerns against providers as a council officer, which with the use of CCTV we could have put a stop to then and there.

Karin Flower Celeb FC


My name is Karin Flower, I am the founder of A voluntary Celebrity Football team, which supports small UK charities and individuals, and my mum Peggy, 79, has vascular dementia.
My mum’s ability to remember, understand, communicate and reason has declined at a steady pace over the last 4 years – with some astoundingly severe changes, following short illnesses.
However, every now & then there are flashes of her prior self – her sparkling personality, her wit, her intelligence (a published author) – which I long to cling too… As I am sure she would too…
At the beginning of this journey, I tried to care for her at home, but with failing health myself, a specialist extra-care home was the sensible option. These facilities offer round the clock care (if and when needed) along with a peace of mind for me that my mum has people on site to help her with day-to-day tasks, which are becoming more difficult as time passes.
The home she is in has been great on many occasions and not so great on others and after a number of falls & lost glasses / keys / food incidents (yes food) my sister and I decided to install CCTV in her flat. Her falls are less now (I can’t explain why) but also, just being able to have a quick peek on her every now and then has really helped with our peace of mind. This is just a cheap, Wi-Fi enabled CCTV inside her flat (not in communal areas) but it still took some persuading of the “facility” – as they didn’t want it initially. But I firmly believe it helps.
Every now and then I’ll call mum on the telephone and she will give me a cute wave on the camera (I prompt her to remember they are there). I personally feel, this should have been a standard part of the property, to safeguard not only mum, but the carers too (my mum can be very vocal when she doesn’t want to take her med’s & if you were listening outside you would believe she was being attacked).
Taking away my personal experiences, I am extremely confused as to how it’s widely recognised that childcare facilities, such as nurseries have CCTV, as do supermarkets to assist with monitoring the care for their charges; but those who care for the vulnerable elderly have no such monitoring system.
It’s been proven time and time again, that the main way to expose care failings for the most vulnerable is to film it.
With CCTV in all care homes and facilities as standard, relatives who have concerns would be reassured. There would be no pressure on the wonderful carers who do a thoroughly good job to whistle blow either as the CCTV could be monitored for any failings.
It would also help with the recruitment of only those who would be happy to be seen doing their job. Thus, weeding out the care workers who for whatever reason are just not meant to be in a role where vulnerable people are being looked after.
With Jaynes campaign and more and more people talking about this, surely, we can go from gasping at horrific footage shown after the event, to all feeling more secure in the knowledge our loved ones and maybe even one day “we” will be watched over and safe.

I know CCTV -Care Campaign for the Vulnerable through my involvement in a dementia-related project for World Alzheimer’s Month.

This project has led us into reading up about the need for CCTV in care homes, and I speak for both myself and my team when I say we have been truly inspired by your proactivity in promoting a cause that doesn’t get enough coverage or support in my opinion.

Obviously today is World Alzheimer’s Day, and my project just went live in collaboration with Dementia Friends.

We have created an interactive ‘Dementia house’ containing a number of household analogies which explain the various nuances of the disease which many people may not actually be aware of.

You can see it here: https://www.allcleartravel.co.uk/dementia-house/

I can’t stress enough how myself and my team have been moved by what we’ve learned about dementia throughout the process, which is why we’re very proud to share this with you.

If this strikes a chord with you, I’d love your support in helping us get it out across social media for #WorldAlzheimersDay today.

Thanks again for the inspiration and keep up the good work,

Daniel Wright
