On Tuesday 14th January, we’ll be launching our fourth and final spike our #DeclareYourCare campaign. We’re focusing on encouraging people with a learning disability, their parents, carers and advocates to feedback to us about their care.
Our research reveals that people with a learning disability are more likely to regret not complaining about poor care than those without. The lack of information about a health condition or treatment options not being well explained, are the main reasons for people with a learning disability or their carer to want to raise a concern. People with learning disabilities are also twice as likely to have concerns about maternity services and mental health services than people without a learning disability.
We’d love for you to help us promote the campaign and its key messages with your followers and audience. There are several ways you could do this:
- Share information about the campaign and campaign assets on your website. This could also include a blog or news piece on your website, using the key findings as guidance
- Watch our video case studies that we’ve developed with Learning Disability England and Ace Anglia and share them on your channels
- Share information about our campaign in your newsletters to organisation members and members of the public
Share campaign information on your social media channels, either by sharing tweets/ posts from CQC channels or posting your own messages, using the campaign hashtag #DeclareYourCare
