RISET - a tool to monitor and reduce restrictive interventions

RISET - helping staff working in disability support services better understand and monitor the use of restrictive interventions or practices.

Under the Disability Act 2006, when a person is in some way restrained or forced to do something, this must be reported to the Senior Practitioner. 

To access RISET

The RISET can be used on mobile phones, laptops, tablets and PCs.


The Senior Practitioner – Disability developed the Restrictive Intervention Self-Evaluation Tool (RISET) to assist disability service providers to understand the use of restrictive interventions. The tool guides users through important information to help them understand when a restrictive intervention could or has occurred.

For accountability purposes, the tool produces documentation to show whether a restrictive intervention has occurred and when an intervention needs to be reported. By reporting the use of restrictive interventions, the Senior Practitioner can monitor these practices and therefore better safeguard the rights of people with disabilities.

Staff working in disability support services are encouraged to use the tool and share it with colleagues and partnering agencies. A survey is built into the last page of the RISET for you to provide your feedback so that it can be improved.
