This Careless campaign action has now closed. Take the latest action here.

Over 9,000 supporters flooded the Care Minister Norman Lamb’s inbox asking him to make sure the new care plans don’t leave vulnerable people with autism at risk of abuse, neglect and loneliness.

The Government responded to these supporters. But, their proposed response doesn’t address our concerns. According to the Government, local authorities will have no duty to provide support for those at risk of abuse. It remains unclear if those who need help with verbal prompting will get it.

We are stepping up the campaign, and the action is now to respond to their consultation on these issues. You only have until 15 August 2014. Click here to take our last change to make sure the new care system takes autism into account.

Thank you
