• A human rights-based approach to person-centred care

      RRN approved training curricula for services supporting adults and children with mental health conditions, learning disabilities, autistic people and people living with dementia across education, health and social care settings

    Bild ACT Certified Training for Social Care Services

    Maybo training focuses on primary and secondary strategies for preventing and managing behaviours of concern by understanding and meeting people's needs

    Practical training that promotes positive outcomes

    This person-centred, human rights-based approach has led us to play a leading role in the development of national guidance, competencies and qualifications.

    We provide flexible, cost-effective training that is based upon different levels of risk and needs.

    Maybo helps care professionals to meet duty of care and regulatory requirements in a way that promotes positive values and behaviours. Our models and learning methods are consistent with the principles of positive behaviour support, focusing on primary and secondary strategies for preventing and defusing behaviours that represent a risk to safety.

    Clients and ‘in house’ trainers benefit from our extensive online resource centre containing a wealth of tools, guidance and learning. These resources and our ‘Champions’ coaching model help local services to reduce risks and restrictive practices and develop personal plans for individuals in their care. 

    In some settings, physical interventions need to be taught to ensure everyone stays safe in a crisis. Our physical skills are proven to be gentle and low arousal, yet robust and safe for use with adults, children and older people when required as a last resort. Our approach helps reduce risks to everyone concerned and focuses on alternatives to force and choosing the least restrictive option when needed. We guide organisations and their staff on how to reduce restrictive practices i.e. not just how to hold more safely. 

    By building staff confidence and competence in how to prevent and safely manage behaviours of concern, quality of care and life can be improved and risks to staff and service users minimised.


    Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards

    The 1st April 2019 saw the launch of the new Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards for training services delivered to education, health and social care services that support people with autism, learning disabilities, dementia and mental health conditions across the UK.

    Commissioned by the NHS, the RRN Training Standards provide a national benchmark for training in restrictive practices and have been endorsed by a number of professional bodies, charities and arm’s length bodies. The Standards and Certification apply:

    • across education, health and social care
    • across children and adult services
    • across the UK and internationally
    • across all services for people with mental health conditions, dementia, learning disabilities, and autistic people

    The Bild Association of Certified Training (Bild ACT) is a new charity, licensed by the Restraint Reduction Net­work to certify training services as complying with the Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards.

    On 20th December 2019, the Bild ACT announced that Maybo was one of five organisations to have achieved Bild Certification.

    From April 2020, it will be a requirement for all NHS commissioned services and the Care Quality Commission that only Bild ACT Certified restrictive intervention training can be delivered in services supporting people with autism, learning disabilities, dementia and mental health conditions in England.

    As one of the first training organisations involved in the Restraint Reduction Network (RRN), the original Bild PI Accreditation Scheme and Positive and Safe Champions Networks, Maybo welcomes these new standards that keep the focus on reducing restrictive practice and that embrace a person-centred, human rights approach to restrictive interventions consistent with Maybo's beliefs and training approach.
