Safeguarding

Outlook Care has a Zero tolerance approach to abuse

Some of you will remember the Panorama documentary shown 3 years ago about serious abuse in a Learning Disability Hospital in Bristol. Since then there have been a plethora of exposés about abuse in the care sector. Tonight on BBC 1 at 9pm, Panorama goes undercover in a care home in Braintree. This programme highlights appalling abuse against some of the most vulnerable people in society. No one with an ounce of compassion will fail to be deeply saddened by this programme.
