Action on Elder Abuse Scotland National Conference (in association with Scottish Care) –  ‘Choice, Empowerment, Protection… Can we Achieve them all?’

October 27, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

While the aims of Scotland’s unique adult support and protection framework are to identify, support and protect those at risk of harm or abuse, many practitioners still struggle with the tensions between individual autonomy and ‘state’ protection. Is it possible to support and protect adults at risk of harm, while ensuring choice and empowerment for the individual?


Come along and join the discussion on:

– whether or not current measures for protecting vulnerable adults in Scotland contain appropriate safeguards and promote individual empowerment

– managing tensions between individual autonomy and adult support and protection

– facilitating and promoting human rights in challenging economic circumstances in health and social care

– balancing human rights and risks in care delivery

– advocacy and empowerment

– tackling financial harm in a familial context

– supporting those who self-neglect

The conference will be of interest to anyone with an interest in older people, adult support and protection, and human rights, including Third Sector frontline and managerial staff.
