Subject: Please sign and share Christine Stringer’s petition

Hi everyone,

About a month ago, I emailed about Christine Stringer who is seeking justice for the way her son was treated by a private supported holiday provider.

Christine has set up a petition and she would be really grateful if you could sign it and encourage others to do so. Please see below which can be shared with your contacts.

Christine Stringer has started a petition to make private holiday providers for adults with learning disabilities and/or autism (who are also providing care) register with the Care Quality Commission. Christine’s son was sent home early from a supported holiday for behaviour that was directly linked to his learning disability and autism. Sadly, this was the last holiday he went on before he died a few months later. Christine is desperately trying to ensure that private supported holiday providers are held to CQC standards. Please take a moment to sign her petition.

Thanks in advance,


Pamela Gallagher-Willis
