The Safeguarding Vulnerable Groups Act 2006 arose from serious cases where children, disabled, elderly and adults were found to have been abused in various different ways.  This legislation was aims to safeguard vulnerable people through various activities; DBS is the disclosure and barring service that vets all persons who are seeking to work within work areas that have vulnerable groups and prevents anyone who is on the DBS list from gaining employment in such settings.  Where UK legislation changes and is amended this course will be updated to reflect this.  

In this course students learn:

Legislation around Safeguarding vulnerable groups

Types of abuse 

Signs and symptoms of abuse

The "alerter"; your role and responsibilities

Reporting and recording; when to make a disclosure and to whom.

Includes: domestic violence and abuse, modern slavery and the homeless

The mental capacity Act and Deprivation of liberties

The Disclosure and Barring system - to be added

Deborah is currently drafting a final element for this course and may take some time to get to you; this element will pay attention to the obligation of confidentiality and data protection.  This involves a very personal experience in which work colleagues, at a place where Deborah once worked, (a private health care setting) forged false allegations against her.  Deborah will utilise the acronym F.E.A.R as a method of providing how psychological abuse can be applied and lead to the decimation of a persons character, credibility and career - Deborah opens this to students so that students will become mindful of a malignant personality disorder that issues abuse in a pathological way.  This element creates the foundation of a course that will be available around Cluster b personality disorders and the abuse they spew upon their victims and looks at holistic healing methods and practices the victim can apply to heal and recover. 

*****Deborah will pay profits from this course as a monthly donation to a charity that helps, supports and assists homeless women here in the UK; this is because women, both migrant and refugee women as well as UK nationals, are the most vulnerable in society.*****

Students identify who is a vulnerable person.

Who are vulnerable people...

Anyone can abuse another person; either deliberately and intently or inadvertently and unintentionally.  However there can be many variables at play where abuse may arise; a person, maybe single handed in caring for a loved one.  This carer may lack training, understanding and knowledge of how to provide care safely and effectively, they may have little to no support.  One day tired and overwhelmed they walk out of the house and ignore the needs of their loved one; this would be deemed abuse but what about other factors?
