PWD ACT and JFA Purple Orange invite you to a consultation on an ACT Government proposal to regulate the use of restrictive practices against people with disabilities.
‘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 are subjected 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.
People With Disabilities ACT is working with JFA Purple Orange to host this consultation
- Date: Tuesday 27 February 2017, 11:00am – 1:00pm
