Briefing paper

This is the first in Yooralla's Insights into Practice series, which provide plain language summaries of key topics in disability support. The complementary roles of teamwork among employees and culture at the home are described.

What you will learn:

  • How teams in group homes can make residents feel safer and have better outcomes
  • Why the attitude of the whole team can be more important than individual team members’ attitudes
  • How effective teamwork can help reduce the use of restrictive practices
  • How safety and safeguarding human rights requires a coordinated team and a culture of awareness with all individuals – employees, residents and families – playing a role.
