FVA Lunchtime Learning sessions to support third sector in Fife
FVA lunchtime learning sessions are aimed at raising the skills and capacities of local third sector providers interested in improving or enhancing their provision in Fife.
Many third sector organisations will work with vulnerable adults who might be deemed as at risk of harm. Others will work with people where the vulnerability is less visible, but no less important: individuals seeking employment, struggling with mental health issues or facing life barriers such as social isolation or addiction can “fall through the gaps”, lacking a social network that see signs of risk.
At this session, Ruth Smith, Engagement and Participation Co-Ordinator from the Adult Support and Protection Team will tell us more about how to identify and support adults that could be at risk of harm. Participants at this session will:
Understand the key messaging around What is Harm? and how to define an adult at risk of harm
Hear key statistics and “uncomfortable” facts
Learn about the different types of harm and how to recognise them
Gain an overview of the “ASP” Process - the '3 R's'
