Protection of Vulnerable Adults

St Mungo’s has adopted the following policy statement:

‘The Scottish Episcopal church recognises the special status of vulnerable people, particularly those who, because they are affected by disability, mental disorder, illness, infirmity or ageing are unable to protect themselves from abuse, or are more vulnerable to being abused than persons who are not so affected. Because of their vulnerability, such persons will be awarded special protection. They are to be respected as persons in their own right, created and loved by God. We therefore commit ourselves to take all steps within our power to keep vulnerable people safe from harm and from abuse of trust’.

St Mungo’s has developed procedures (similar to child protection procedures) to ensure that vulnerable adults are protected from abuse.

Pat Banfill is the coordinator for the Protection of Vulnerable Adults.
