Event description

Description

This event is specifically for people living with disability.

Have your say about restrictive practices

Restrictive practices’ refers to activities that some human services use to support a person, but which remove some freedoms from that person. Restrictive practices can include time-out, locked doors, physical restraints, mechanical restraints, some types of medication, and others.

People who can be subject to restrictive practices can include children living with psychological trauma, people living with disability, people living with mental illness, and older people.

The ACT Government is thinking about having an ‘Office of the Senior Practitioner’, to help decide what types of restrictive practices are ok and in what circumstances.

The ACT Government wants to make sure the ACT community has the chance to give its views on this important issue, and has asked not-for-profit agency JFA Purple Orange to run a consultation.
