ST-ACS PBS Training

ST-ACS PBS Approach

St Anne’s are BILDACT certificated to provide the following courses, which meet the Restraint Reduction Network Standards 2019:

• St Anne’s RRN Pathway – 2 days plus bespoke physical intervention training
• St Anne’s Refresher/Update – 1 day


ST-ACS PBS Training model delivers the highest quality elements:

Primary – planning, audits, analysis, risk assessments.

Secondary – de-escalation, de-fusion, distractions and self management.

Reactive – non aversive interventions, least restrictive practice including bespoke breakaways and BILDACT certificated physical interventions.

Responsive elements – recovery, post incidents report, stress management, report and recording, data collection.

ST-ACS PBS Training team will only focus on least restrictive safe practice. We use non aversive techniques avoiding, if possible, the use of any restrictive physical interventions.

Bespoke Positive Behaviour Support (PBS)

We will design a PBS programme bespoke to the person through a training needs analysis. 

Holistic Approaches

We will work with projects in order to deliver a holistic person-centred training and develop plans to support vulnerable individuals. These plans may include bespoke breakaway and physical intervention techniques.

We offer our unique expertise to other organisations through our externally accredited behaviour support training and development programme. ST-ACS PBS Training team encourage candidates to explore unique opportunities, reflecting and learning and developing processes and outcomes to be applied when working with people perceived as challenging.

We offer cost effective PBS training that is successfully embedded within our organisation. This model involves the delivery of high quality training and development of the systems required.

St Anne’s Community Services is a not for profit organisation. All income will be used to enhance the lives of clients through investment in services.

Coronavirus (Covid 19) Statement

Due to the exceptional circumstances due to the ongoing Coronavirus (also known as Covid 19) and the Government rules about self-isolating it is very important to reduce the risk of cross infection to all our Clients and staff teams. Our teams are working hard to support all our clients and are committed to keeping everyone as safe as possible.

This means that, in most circumstances, and in line with government information regarding self-isolation and staying at home there should be no visitors to any of our services.

We know, however, that this will be very distressing for some of our Clients.

Therefore, we are saying there must be no visitors to services unless there are exceptional circumstances and the visit is essential.

Before a visit can take place, this must be risk assessed by the manager considering government advice and the individual circumstances. Before setting off on any visit to your relative/friend please get in contact with St Anne’s staff to discuss your visit.

Our services are using all kinds of technology, including social media to make sure that the people we support can stay in touch with those important to them

St Anne’s has developed a visitors protocol to enable visits to begin again in North Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, Durham, Middlesbrough and Leeds care homes.

In line with Government & local Council Guidelines each Client may have one family member or other person who is close to them visit on a regular basis.

Decisions where visitors can go are being based on Individual Local Authority advice following Government guidelines.
