We are delighted to welcome Alexis Quinn to the Restraint Reduction Network staff team in our new RRN Manager/ Coordinator role. We look forward to working with Alexis, who will be the operational lead and coordinator for RRN’s work.
Alexis is a mother, educator, author and a person with lived experience. She knows first hand how traumatic restraint, seclusion and long-term segregation is for everyone involved. Alexis speaks of the importance of creating “cultures that enable people, and see people as assets, not problems, and where genuine relationships are built on mutual trust and respect…cultures flourish when people’s rights, their families and their humanity are front and centre.”
We look forward to working with Alexis to equip staff, families, carers and people with lived experience with the best knowledge, tools and resources to help services reduce reliance on restrictive practices.
