Restrictive practices are any type of support or practice that limits the rights or freedom of movement of a person with disability.
In 2017, JFA Purple Orange undertook a consultation for the ACT Government to assist in the establishment of an Office of the Senior Practitioner (OSP). This work involved hearing the views of people living with disability and their families around their experiences of restrictive practices. We also consulted with individuals working in the disability sector on their views around how to minimise and eliminate the use of restrictive practices.
