Health and Social Care

Minimising Restrictive Practices Training


Investigations into abuses at Winterbourne View Hospital and others have shown that restrictive interventions have not always been used only as a last resort in health and care, they have even been used to inflict pain, humiliate or punish. The use of restrictive interventions have often been used excessively and for the wrong reasons often with little thought given as to the use of more positive and proactive approaches. Their use can cause significant trauma for all involved and can frequently hinder recovery and the implementation of effective care and support.

This one day session looks to develop understanding for those involved in the support and care of others in order that they can work in a positive and pro-active way to minimise the use of all forms of restrictive practices. It may be used as an introduction to the subject to pre-empt participation into more in depth specific training/consultation into the various topics covered.

Care Act Awareness


The Care Act brings care and support legislation together into a single act with a new well-being principle at its heart. It introduces major reforms to the legal framework for adult care and support in England – from the duties of local authorities, to the rights of those in need of care and support and their carers and to the funding system for care and support.

What does it mean for you?
Implementation of the Care Act will have significant implications for the adult social care workforce in England.

The changes will impact the way councils do business and the roles of their workforce. They will have an impact on care providers and user organisations and their roles in the delivery of care, and the expectations and duties placed on them by the new legislation.

Drawing on our trainers’ wealth of experience in the sector our training sessions are an introduction to the changes brought about by the Care Act 2014. They are intended as knowledge building tools to inform and motivate the construction of a competent workforce able to respond to the needs of individuals and the sector as a whole.

The Act introduces wide reaching reforms to adult care and support in England. Implementation of the Act is a major reform programme and underpinning it is a need for cultural change.  Successful implementation will therefore require good change management leadership.  We can offer a range of workshops including awareness sessions covering the whole Act or specific sessions focussing on particular aspects of the Act.
