When a service has a closed culture, people are more at risk of abuse and human rights breaches.

Closed environments may develop in services where people are situated away from their communities, where people stay for months or years at a time, where there is weak management of these services and where staff often lack the right skills, training or experience to support people.

This webinar will be of interest to practitioners and professionals from health and social care - social workers, nurses, care workers and providers, to be able to understand what a closed culture is and why is it is bad, to be able to identify a closed culture in your day to day work and to be confident to know what to do if you suspect a closed culture.
