Story

My name is Simone Aspis and for my 50th birthday I have set up this campaign. I am a disabled person wanting to stop the institutionalisation of people with learning difficulties and Autism. I was inspired by a psychiatric inpatient with autism and learning difficulties who asked me to be her advocate. During regular hospital visits, I would be approached by other patients asking for advocacy support. Many patients want independent advocates, with lived experience of disability injustice to speak out for them and secure their rights to freedom.

Thousands of people with learning difficulties and autism are locked up inappropriately in assessment and treatment units (ATUs) and psychiatric hospitals. Last year alone the Government spent £477m on incarcerating 2,500 people with learning difficulties and autism in ATUs. Instead this money could have been spent on providing high quality housing and community care services that give them the right to independent living.

Your donations will help us set up a network of disabled advocates to work with disabled inpatients who are fighting for their freedom to live in their local communities.
