    Local Authorities are responsible for the care of vulnerable people. It is they who buy the care. If they buy care from private contractors that does not absolve them of one iota of responsibility. It is fundamentally wrong for this service to be outsourced to private companies whose motive is profit not care. Privately owned and run care homes should be brought under Council ownership and control so that those who are involved in the daily care of vulnerable people can be made accountable.

    Those who have already been hurt and/or traumatised should be helped to sue the local councils who failed them. It is up to the councils to then sue the private companies who did not deliver on their contractual obligations.

    Local Councillors themselves have responsibility. That is why we elect them. They must not shelter behind officers. Councillors who did not ensure the people in their care were decently treated should be exposed, when things go well they accept the applause; now is the time for them to accept their share of the blame.

    Here in a nutshell are the problems that institutional living poses and why contracting out is dangerous. Profit over people again. Disgraceful that Castlebeck is still being allowed to operate.

    Social Care for Vulnerable Adults Must NOT be in the Hands of Private Companies
    as the Winterbourne Outrage of Evil and Cruelty Shows

    All Care Needs for such Vulnerable Adults Needs to be in Public Authority Hands
    with Public Accountibility and The Negligent and Malicious being made to Account
    for their Cruelty and Nastiness

    It is a Question both of Humanity and of Public Service
