We are delighted that one of our staff teams from Wigan won the Inclusive Practice award at last night’s BILD Restraint Reduction Network Leadership Awards.
The Awards acknowledge good practice and contributions to the development of minimising the use of restraint in the lives of people who rely on others for care and support.
In particular, the Inclusive Practice award recognised the inclusive way the MacIntyre team, together with Redstone Positive Behaviour Support and with lots of involvement from the person’s family, reduced the use of restraints and self-injurious behaviour of the person being supported. The award win is a testament to the way everyone involved worked together to achieve positive outcomes, and would not have been achievable without Redstone Positive Behaviour Support or the family.
One of our residential staff teams from MacIntyre School was also recognised at the BILD Restraint Reduction Network Leadership Awards in the Innovative Practice category. The team reached the finals in this category for their creativity in reducing the use of restraint, which resulted in extremely positive outcomes for the young person being supported.
MacIntyre’s success in these awards demonstrates our expertise in Positive Behaviour Support and the noticeable difference we are making to the lives of children, young people and adults every day. Well done to everyone involved!
