Lift the Ban – sign the petition!

People seeking safety in our country are effectively banned from working. As a result, many are left to live in poverty, struggling to support themselves and their families, whilst the Government wastes the talents of thousands of people.

This needs to change. Sign the petition and tell the Home Secretary to #LiftTheBan!

Give people the right to work. Right now!

Bethany’s Dad Has Important News

Bethany’s story came to light a week or so ago.  Whilst many of us in the SEN world are sickened and shocked – at the same time, we are not surprised.  I have the privilege of having her Dad’s permission to share his update.  We are all familiar with the concept of ‘meetings about me without me’… well below is a spectacular version.  Read on for a happier ending than usual.

For those who would like some background:  Beth is locked in a seclusion cell with (10′ x 12′) with one door and no window.  She is 17.  She has been in seclusion for 21 months.  Until recently she had part of a pen in her arm.  I understand that the media outcry at least resulted in this being addressed.  She has her food passed to her through a hatch.
