Like-minded organisations in pursuit of restraint-free services

Join us as an organisation

Joining the Restraint Reduction Network is a great opportunity for your organisation to demonstrate its commitment to reducing unnecessary and harmful restrictive practices and upholding human rights.

Membership is completely free with access to some great benefits including:

  • Regular updates from the Restraint Reduction Network with the latest sector news, guidance, resources and materials
  • Discounted events and conference places to help you and your employees reduce reliance on restrictive practices and access a network of like-minded peers
  • Exclusive rights to use the Restraint Reduction Network Organisation Member logo on your website to demonstrate your commitment to reducing restrictive practices

You and your employees can each receive more benefits by becoming individual members.

Membership is for all organisations who work with people vulnerable to restrictive practices, including but not limited to:

  • Education
  • Health
  • Social care
  • Forensic settings

We are asking all of our organisation members to commit to writing an action plan based on the Six Core Strategies (download the infographic here) These six strategies were developed through extensive literature reviews and dialogues with experts who have successfully reduced the use of seclusion and restraint in a variety of settings. They have been adopted internationally as best practice for organisations who wish to reduce their use of restraint. You can review what you have done so far, and identify your top 3 priority actions to be completed in the next 2 years.

You can also watch the webinar below about the Six Core Strategies that will support you to develop an action plan.

Once you have submitted your action plan, we will review it and let you know when your membership has been approved. Upon approval, you will receive a Restraint Reduction Network Organisation Member logo™ and have access to all Organisation Member benefits. Furthermore, your top three priorities (only) will be published on our website (we will not share contact info).
