Risk Assessment Tool for Safeguarding

Posted on: May 15th, 2015 by admin

IDC are working on a new risk assessment tool for those dealing with vulnerable people. Generating a risk ‘score’ on each occasion will enable organisations to show how effective their interventions have been; a crucial aspect of reporting to funding bodies and commissioners. The risk assessment is based on various factors including sexual health, mental health, financial hardship, personal relationships, lifestyle and living arrangements, as well as smoking and drug use.
