Earlier this year we reported that there was an allegation of abuse at one of our residential units.

In accordance with our safeguarding procedures, the incident was reported to all the relevant authorities including the police. Autism Together can confirm that the external investigation has now been concluded and there is no further action to be taken.

Robin Bush, CEO of Autism Together, said:

“The resident in question is someone we know well and have cared for over a long period, so any upset to this individual or to their family is a matter of great concern. I am pleased that this matter has now been concluded  and we are reassured that our staff acted in accordance with their training and in the best interests of the individual”
