Care Campaign for the Vulnerable (CCFTV) was founded by former promotions and airline professional, Jayne Connery, who lives in Buckinghamshire. During her time in the care sector, she saw an urgent need for greater transparency when caring for vulnerable residents living with dementia and a decision was made to take her loved one back home when unwitnessed and unexplained injuries happened in her care. Jayne told of the struggle navigating the care system and how she experienced little support when trying to communicate her mother's care needs.
Jayne decided to become a care partner and set up a dementia support group for families. Through sheer hard work and commitment, Care Campaign for the Vulnerable (CCFTV) is now an independent, national, not for profit, safety in dementia care organisation working with the sector to champion and promote the use of safety monitoring in communal areas within all UK care homes, particularly communities caring for elderly living with dementia.
The work CCFTV undertake brings families and care workers to us seeking help and advice. CCFTV is the only safety monitoring in care organisation that directly supports families and carers by working together with the care sector, including commissioning groups, safeguard teams and social workers to help bring positive outcomes. CCFTV supports families through evictions as well as being invited to care homes to talk about the benefits safety monitoring will bring to all who live and work in care. We are regularly asked to speak at care shows and exhibitions and comment on elderly dementia care /social care issues on TV and national news media and constantly raise awareness to a care sector that despite being vastly under-funded and lacking support, has incredible and dedicated care professionals working in it.
