Let’s talk about restraint!

We have recently undertaken a groundbreaking piece of work with our colleagues over at Disability Sheffield looking at the whole issue of restraint and how it affects individual employers and their PAs.

We had lots of discussion around what we mean by restraint and decided that the most important thing is for employers and/or their families have a proper conversation with their PAs about the type of restraint that is necessary and acceptable, and the restraint that is not acceptable.

Our findings are in the attached report, along with an evaluation of our project which demonstrated what a valuable piece of work this has been.

We’ve just found out that Skills For Care have awarded Disability Sheffield further funding to continue this work in partnership with Active Independence.
