Please come and support our protest on September 10th ( 12 -2pm) At Parliament Sq. We will be holding a peaceful protest that will remember all victims of silence including those abused in care homes and hospitals. We are calling for Ednas Law, which would protect whistle-blowers and hold those responsible for abuse to account. Please help us to break the silence that allows all abuse to occur. Hundreds of people are coming from all over the country, both whistle-blowers and those who have lost loved ones.

Thu 31/07/2014 - Edna's Law

Edna had no family to speak for her, when she was abused in a care home she was totally reliant on someone speaking out to protect her. Seven Whistle-blowers did speak out and were forced out of their jobs for doing so. The regulator fully upheld the abuse alligations but the company continually denied there was anything wrong.Those responsible for the abuse were protected and promoted. Four years later information was made public that showed vulnerable people had continued to sufferer. Edna's law would ensure this never happens again.

Thu 01/05/2014 - Panorama, behind closed doors

Last nights Panorama special featured an undercover report on the Old Deanary Care home as a result of this charitys work with Whistle-blowers. We have always highlighted the suffering that results when Whistle-blowers are ignored or unable to speak out, to see that avoidable suffering captured on film really drives this home but what should not be forgotton is that this is one of hundreds of cases where abuse happened after whistle-blowers spoke out.
