Improvement Cymru are holding 3 workshops across Wales about restrictive practices with:

Restrictive practices are ways of stopping people from doing something. Or controlling people. For example:

  • holding someone down to stop them hurting themselves or others
  • giving them medicine to stop them doing something harmful
  • making them stay in a room away from other people.

You can read more about restrictive practices in Welsh Government’s “Reducing restrictive practices framework” easy read document.

The workshops are for people with a learning disability and their families. The aim of the workshops is to tell you about:

  • the 7 types of restrictive practices
  • when it is lawful to use restrictive practices
  • how the law protects you and what your rights are.

The workshops will be taking place in:

  • South Wales on 4 October at the Village Hotel, Cardiff
  • North Wales on 6 October at Conwy Business Centre, Conwy
  • West Wales on 27 October at Ffos Las Racecourse, Kidwelly.
