Mencap say in the comments:

Hi Charlotte, we are appalled by what is happening in the picture. After seeing it we immediately took action, and have suspended the support worker in question and reported the issue to the relevant local authority safeguarding team. We take the wellbeing of the people we support extremely seriously, and we expect and train our staff to deliver high quality care and support services. What we see here would fall well below that standard. Our priority now, as always, is ensuring that we offer the highest quality of care to our beneficiaries so they live the lives they choose.

    As a mental health service user,I have no objection to people smoking as long as they don’t blow the smoke in my face.I admit it does sting my eyes a bit.
