My 34-year-old daughter who has LDs and lives in a residential care home in Pembrokeshire is being denied her human rights because of where she lives. Although Wales in now in Alert level 2, nothing has changed for her at all except that I am allowed to see her for 1 hour a week.
While the rest of society can go to pubs, cafes, shops, cinemas, pools, gyms etc, she is not 'allowed' to go and have a cup of tea in a friend's garden, go for a walk with me without staff to 'police' social distancing, resume one of her activities which is up and running safely, risk assessed by the local authority or come in my car.
The care home say they are 'following welsh Govt guidelines'. If this is true, those guidelines need to change NOW.
I have tried emails and phone calls and meetings. Nothing changes. I am thinking it's time for Direct (non-violent) Action. I haven't got a plan yet, but I'm thinking media, leaflets, placard, standing outside Welsh Government.
IS MY DAUGHTER THE ONLY PERSON IN WALES IN THIS SITUATION? IS THERE ANYONE ELSE?
I'd be really grateful for any advice or to hear from anyone who'd like to do something similar.
Huge thanks in advance
