Assessors with mental health and dementia experience needed for new accreditation scheme

We are looking for freelance Assessors for an accreditation scheme to help us improve the quality of life and safety of many vulnerable people, and the staff that support them.

This role offers an opportunity to be at the leading edge of quality assurance within the field of restraint reduction. You will be responsible for assessing the quality of training programmes being delivered in health, education and social care settings.

We are particularly keen to recruit people with experience of working in mental health settings and services for older people, including working with people who live with dementia.

The accreditation scheme will be underpinned by the new Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards. It will cover settings that include services for people with mental health conditions and services for people that live with dementia. The scheme will also cover training that is delivered in services for people with learning disabilities and autistic people.

The new RRN Training Standards have been commissioned by Health Education England and produced by the Restraint Reduction Network.

The RRN is an independent network which brings together organisations committed to reducing restrictive practice across all sectors.

The Accreditation Scheme is a clear indication of an organisation’s commitment to minimise the use of restrictive interventions. All organisations applying for the accreditation scheme will need to comply with the new RRN Training Standards.
