Richardson Care has been approved by the Bild Association of Certified Training as an affiliate of CPI (Crisis Prevention Institute) and as complying with the Restraint Reduction Network training standards.
This means that the safety intervention foundation training that we provide at Richardson Care for all staff working with adults who have learning disabilities complies with the Restraint Reduction Network training standards. This training is part of a comprehensive training programme, which is also delivered to staff who work with adults who have acquired brain injury, plus admin and maintenance staff. The managers of some of our services are certified by CPI to deliver this training.
We have been members of CPI for over 25 years as our core values are to treat all individuals with dignity and respect in a positive and caring environment. We value each person’s uniqueness, protecting and actively supporting their right to experience growing autonomy and fulfil their potential.
We use preventative strategies and psychological techniques to de-escalate situations and avoid physical restraint.
Through comprehensive training and by developing the culture of our organisation, we aim to:
- Protect people’s fundamental human rights and promote person centred, best interest and therapeutic approaches to supporting people when they are distressed
- Improve the quality of life of the people in our care and those supporting them
- Support our service users to understand their behaviours and develop strategies to manage them.
- Reduce reliance on restrictive practices by promoting positive culture and practice that focuses on prevention de-escalation and reflective practice
- Increase understanding of the root causes of behaviour and recognition that many behaviours are the result of distress due to unmet needs.
- Where required, focus on the safest and most dignified use of restrictive interventions including physical restraint.
