A month ago, Dispatches aired Under Lock and Key. 31 days later, what’s changed?
For anyone familiar with the disability sector, asking ‘what’s changed?’ after 31 days might seem ridiculous. Pointless. Futile. Families fight relentlessly to ensure, or attempt to secure, high-quality, compassionate care for their loved ones. Grieving parents wait years for the outcome of sterile, defensive reports into the death of their children. Scandals such as Winterbourne View or that of St. Andrew’s in Northampton, as featured in Under Lock and Key, take years to come to public attention.
We've been overwhelmed with positive responses to the opening of our Madhouse, My House? exhibition at Hackney Museum. Read some of them here:

We were excited to have actors Cian Binchy and Jules Robertson, as well as Artistic Director Nick Llewellyn, featured on Channel 4 News.
Jules and his mother Kathy charm Amanda as they talk on Lorraine about their experience with Jules' "frankness" and how he finds his role on Holby City.
Harvey has experienced a lot over the years with Access All Areas; he has been with us since Rainbow Drama Group in 1976. He has been a regular in our shows and weekly sessions with Black Cab Theatre Company. In 2016, he will be on the big screen with Jim Broadbent in ‘The Sense of an Ending’ after acting with him in 1982’s film 'Walter'.
At 80 years old, Harvey is just as theatrical and charming as ever, we interviewed him about his experiences and this is what he said.
