Vulnerability-related risks

How to recognise and respond to risks when working with vulnerable people

Vulnerability-related risks

These guidelines focus on supporting officers and staff to:

  • recognise individuals at risk of harm
  • better understand the vulnerabilities of all those they encounter, rather than thinking about risk in relation to individual forms of harm, such as child abuse or domestic violence in isolation
  • interact with vulnerable people in a way that maximises opportunities for disclosure

The guidelines consist of:

  • one strategic-level guideline for chief officers
  • three practical guidelines for police responders
