Children tell us: train staff so they don't need to use restraint

04 Dec 2012

Today the Office of the Children’s Rights Director has published a report called Children’s views on restraint.

Children’s Rights Director Roger Morgan has not added his views to the report, he has used direct quotes from the 94 children he and his team spoke to as part of the consultation. Overall children agreed that restraint should only be used as a last resort. Every group said staff should always try to calm things down before things get too bad that restraint is needed.
