(See also the separate policy on Safeguarding Service Users from Abuse and Harm: Restraints, including Physical Controls, and Restrictive Practices in Care Homes (Wales) Policy.)

The purpose of this policy is to ensure that all service users and staff are aware of their respective human and citizens’ rights and responsibilities, particularly in relation to the potential use of restraints and actions that restrain the service user’s freedom of movement and action.
