Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults (Volunteer Now)

Volunteer Now was commissioned by the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety (DHSSPS), to develop this publication, which contains minimum standards of best practice and guidance for organisations working with adults at risk in the voluntary, community and independent sectors.

Volunteer Now developed the publication in consultation with a Safeguarding Vulnerable Adults Advisory Group comprising representatives from key voluntary, independent sector and statutory agencies with experience and expertise in their field.
