Restrictive Practices issues paper

  • Issues papers
Publication date

Our latest issues paper looks at the use and impact of restrictive practices on people with disability. We want to know about the effects of restrictive practice on people with disability. We are also interested in understanding how laws, policies and practices around restrictive practices can be improved to better prevent and protect people with disability from violence, abuse, neglect and exploitation.

The issues paper asks 13 questions to help people and organisations to provide responses. The paper is available in Easy Read, PDF and DOCX.
