Adult Protection Information

The Adult and Child Protection Committee intends that all staff and volunteers who work for partner agencies should be aware of issues around adult protection and understand what action to take if adults are at risk of harm.  The aim in producing the training CD Rom is to provide this information in a format which is accessible in the workplace and for individuals or groups in the community.  It is hoped that as many staff/volunteers as possible will be given the opportunity to work through the CD Rom and subsequently to discuss any questions or concerns with a line manager, fellow committee member or Service Manager (Adult Social Work Team).
 
Copies of this CDRom are available for voluntary organisations from Edwina Lloyd at VAO.
