Here at Channel 4 we stand up for diversity and inclusion.

Unfortunately not everyone agrees with us and one of the dark sides of this can be abuse posted online. To shine a light on this behaviour Channel 4 has partnered with a few of our advertisers to show examples of real abuse received online. This abuse was posted against real people featured in advertisements.

Fortunately examples like those featured in this campaign are posed by a minority, but we ask - if face to face abuse of this kind is not tolerated in our society, is it right that it should be online? If you have been affected by any of the issues raised in this campaign there is support available through the links below:

Families provide long-term love, care and support for their disabled relatives, and speak up for them. Even when people leave home, they do not leave the family. Families continue to offer a lifetime of involvement and support, and know a great deal about their relative's needs and wishes, likes and dislikes. When the service and support for a relative go wrong, it can be very difficult for families to deal with. They may be faced with a barrage of information and decisions to take, as well as coming to terms with what has happened. If you are concerned about your relative's care you may contact your relative's care manager to address issues. Any safeguarding concerns may be raised with your local safeguarding team, who can be contacted via social services. It is important that families know where they can find impartial information, and find out what support is available to them. Here is a list of organisations and links that you may find useful:
