A website has recently been set up to help families and close friends having problems visiting a loved one who is autistic and/or has learning difficulties. As a result of COVID-19 visits have been limited or stopped in inpatient mental health settings, care homes or supported living.

The website aims to help families and close friends by providing them with free guidance on helping them understand their rights and challenge restrictions.

There is also a free live webinar on Wednesday 21 October which will focus on the law and how human rights can help as well as explaining the features of the website.

You can view the Right2Visit website by clicking here.
