Summary

People with cognitive and/or mental health impairments are over-represented in the criminal justice system. The Joint Protocol to reduce the contact of people with disability in supported accommodation with the criminal justice system aims to reduce unnecessary contact with the Police in relation to incidents that would be better managed within the disability accommodation service, and to improve relationships and communication between local police and disability services.

The Ombudsman’s office has developed two short videos to help disability support workers and managers to quickly understand the Joint Protocol and what they need to do. The videos are available on our YouTube channel:

Information for Disability Support Workers (3.30min)
Information for Managers of Supported Accommodation (3min)
