A social care training video for care staff on the theme of mental capacity. Roger is a man with learning disabilities living in a supported living service. An assessment of his mental capacity to make different financial decisions is being undertaken by a social worker.
The video focuses on Philip who suffered physical, financial and emotional abuse in the family home for many years. He has learning disabilities and cerebral palsy. When Philip finally disclosed the abuse, he was supported to leave the family home. He now lives a full and independent life.
This video shows how training for people with learning disabilities can help them to protect themselves from abuse. They are helped to recognise it and to understand that they can and should say no. The training has been adapted for older people, people with physical disabilities and people who misuse substances.
This report shares findings from research, policy and practice on prevention in adult safeguarding and presents a wide range of approaches that can help prevent abuse.
