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.
