Complete our member survey on the use of restraint and restrictive intervention

News - 19 Dec 2017

The DfE has produced new draft guidance aimed at reducing the need for restraint and restrictive intervention for children and young people with learning disabilities, autistic spectrum disorder and mental health needs. They are seeking views on this guidance.

The DfE and the Department of Health both wish to see the incidents of restraint or restrictive intervention reduced, in order to promote and safeguard the welfare of children and young people. The draft guidance aims to help schools and settings to develop plans to support children and young people whose behaviour challenges, by adopting a preventative approach.
The guidance is non-statutory and advisory; please consider reading it and sharing your views through completing the survey.
 
To shape nasen's response to the consultation we need to hear our members' views. Please take a few minutes to complete our short survey.
