WORKING WITH CARE
A Guide to Protecting the Vulnerable from Abuse
by
Philip Darling, Colin Selby & Graham Mills
Forward by Paul Burstow MP

Based on extensive research, this practical guidebook provides:

  • A coherent framework setting out the seven critical areas any organisation needs to address in developing and sustaining a safe environment
  • Practical checklists for assessing risks and workforce development needs in each of the critical areas
  • Guidance on how to use the checklists to conduct a review and develop an action plan
  • An introduction to a separate facility, which is complementary to this Guide, for the provision of an on-line Risk Assessment Audit Survey
  • An illustrative case study, plus a detailed listing of organisations and other resources about the prevention of abuse.

Its uses are wide ranging, including:

  • Training and developing staff
  • Building an aware culture and shared understanding of any organisation’s approach to the issue of abuse and its management
  • Evaluating any organisation’s performance and progress towards abuse free service provision
  • Identifying and sharing best practice within and across organisations.

“Really exciting… very comprehensive and valuable.”
