It’s been ten years since BBC Panorama exposed the Winterbourne View scandal. At the British Association of Social Workers (BASW England), Liz Howard explains how they are taking action to make sure human rights abuses suffered by people with learning disabilities and autistic people are never forgotten.

Capabilities statement for social workers working with autistic adults

Understanding what is important to adults with learning disabilities and/or autism helps practitioners and organisations make meaningful contributions to their lives and those around them. BASW's Liz Howard explains how new capabilities statement resources provide social workers with the means to capture the voices and experiences of people and families to shape our learning, development and growth as a profession.
