nasen's response to consultation: 'Reducing the need for restraint and restrictive intervention'
Read how nasen has responded to this consultation which closed on 24th January.
The guidance document 'Reducing the need for restraint and restrictive intervention' was jointly produced by the Departments of Health and Education in order to help special education, health and care settings to develop plans to support children and young people whose behaviour challenges, in order to reduce the incidence and risk associated with that behaviour; and to promote and safeguard the welfare of children and young people in their care.
nasen is always very keen to represent the views of our members on topics relating to children and young people with SEND, and so published a survey asking for your views. Read our response here.
We will let you know as soon as the Departments make their response to this consultation.
