Think Local Act Personal

Restricting someone's movements by leaving them alone in a room or separate space that they cannot leave, in order to prevent them hurting themselves or someone else. The person should be supervised, and the room will not necessarily be locked. This should only be done for a limited amount of time, which should be stated in the person's support plan.
