We recognise that services are treading a delicate balance between taking necessary action to keep children and young people safe, while not unnecessarily restricting liberty. Our new position paper sets out our attitude, expectation, and actions around the restriction and deprivation of liberty in care home, school care and secure accommodation services. This includes circumstances where children and young people may be deprived of their liberty, where their liberty is restricted, or where this is a risk through environmental design and/or care practices. You can see the paper here.
