New free website: Action Against Cruelty

Lemos&Crane are excited to launch our new website Action Against Cruelty. The site brings together research and comprehensive guidance on supporting adults with learning disabilities to lead safe and independent lives free from abuse, harassment and loneliness. 

Action Against Cruelty builds on our 2012 research report Loneliness and Cruelty, which revealed the extent to which many people with learning disabilities find themselves victim to targeted cruelty or abuse in their community. The website is a positive response to these distressing findings, offering thorough guidance on identifying and responding to well-being concerns, supporting people through reporting cruelty and any subsequent legal measures as well as safeguarding, prevention and civil remedies.  There are also numerous additional resources including case studies, research reports, further expert guidance and over a hundred good practice examples. The website is completely free and open to anybody with an interest in this important issue.

Action Against Cruelty is unique in also featuring an entirely accessible microsite for independent use by adults with learning disabilities. This covers recognising cruelty in its many forms, what to do if you or someone you know becomes victim to mistreatment or harassment, reporting incidents, victim support and supporting friends through experiences of cruelty, as well as further EasyRead material on topics such as keeping safe, healthy sex and relationships and managing money.

The development of Action Against Cruelty has been informed throughout by a reference group of adults with learning disabilities and a research group of practitioners from adult social care and related organisations. The EasyRead microsite was very kindly user-tested by adults with learning disabilities from numerous organisations, and the EasyRead images provided by CHANGE. The project was supported by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions for Against Against Cruelty, feel free to contact us by emailing Sarah.
