Use of restraint in children’s homes

Stuart Gallimore, ADCS President, said:

“Children and young people living in children’s homes are vulnerable and some can present with very difficult behaviours that may require the use of restraint, but only as a last resort. Keeping children and young people safe from harm is all about assessing risk and steps should always be taken to avoid the need to use restrictive physical intervention, wherever possible. Any staff working directly with children in children’s homes should be trained in the safe use of restraint and are permitted to use this to protect a child or others from harm.”
